I know this should be in mechanical but I need HELP!!!!!!
So I put it all back together and she started up no probs. But the tappets didn't sound like they were getting oil but having the rocker cover off confirmed that they were.
So went for a short drive because everything was ok at this point. When I say short I mean like a mile, if that..
And when I came back it was sounding much better.
But I was stil a little unhappy about it. So had it running with the bonnet up and was checking this and that.
So I started her up again and there was a muffled bang crunch rattle noise and no oil pressure.
My hand was still on the key so I turned her straight off.
And now no oil pressure!
I've checked the big ends and they're all fine. All still as they should be.
All i can think is dead oil pump.
anyone got any other suggestions???
