Oil and Filter

I got it home ok but now it has no oil pressure at idle but the pressure will come up as the engine revs.

Any ideas on where to start looking? It never knocked or ticked like a rod bearing spun! It starts fine just has no pressure at idle.

Did you change the oil and filter after the break-in period? Avoid Fram filters (IMO), use an AC or Wix (Napa or Carquest). Ed
