Re: oil pressure problem


51: The two holes on each side of the cam are oil galley holes and usually covered by the thrust plate. With a gear drive they need soft plugs installed. Gene Adams taught me to install the soft plugs using the stock thrust plate or the gear drive. Hope this helps, Bob

Funny because I couldn't find where the last plug in the plug kit went from HH and figured it was a spare. Installed that. It was fun. Didn't remove anything but the distributor and intermediate shaft for the oil pump and managed to tighten that thing down.
