well that noise I hear seems to be the oil pump, It'* coming mostly from the timing chain cover area.
what I don't want to do is replace the oil pump and timing chain to lose the mains later.
the motor runs strong, hardly any cold knock on start up, it runs smooth till it warms up. but then it has a ruff idle, and low oil psi, not in the red but just above it, and it comes right up on rev up, and the noise goes away. but from what i read the mains are sure to go.
anyone in the *.E. michigan area have a good 3.8 II.
