good and bad

Ok, the good.....after many posts and much help, I have finally started my pickup. the timing is set, and the carb is almost tuned.

The bad....after running it for a bit, I am getting no oil pressure (which i had when i had first started it), and I am getting a wacking noise from somewhere in the motor. I can not figure out what it is. I think I may have an idea but I"m not sure. All the valves have been adjusted so I know they are not chattering.

A bit of info:
its a 1979 chevy K10
350sbc
holly 650cfm carb

I just pulled the engine apart to put in new rings in all the way around.

Before i did this job, i would loose oil pressure after running the truck for a bit; along with that came a loss of oil as well. The oil dip stick seems to be reading at full so i know I have plenty of oil in there. When I rev the engine the oil pressure goes up and then drops to nothing.

Any help please, i can use it. thanks once again.

Steve
