Im assumin the OP (Original Poster) abbreviates 'assembly' by its first 3 letters. This gets picked up by the nanny software and converted to ***. If you use " assy " its usually okay.

oil

I had a buddy back in the late 60,s and he had a 57 Coupe De ville that smoked a little on start up but settled out quickly and he was bound and determined to to put Castrol Super GTX in it. My dad told him to put 30 wt, non detergent oil. My buddy wasn,t too swift and put in the GTX. The motor threw a quart of oil every couple of miles ater that and he ruined it. Live and learn. Clint

update

after doing some research and installing oil pressure gauge , i found out by turning the wheel to left my pressure drops to 0 and when i get straight it comes back up ,, and some people say that my pickup has come loose , so i guess i have to pull the motor , thats the only way i can get the oil pan off ,,

thanks guys just a update

This engine doesn't have a oil filter. These old engines used mostly non-detergent oil. If you ran a cleaning solution through the engine can you imagine all the sludge and grime that would flow through the oil passages. I think I read before about the oil passages in the rear of the motor getting plugged up. I would clean everything up the best I could. Blow air through the oil galleries then drop the oil pan and clean it real good. I would buy a new set of lifters and install them. I would use a straight 30w non-detergent oil like they used back in the day.
