First I want to thank you guys for your responses. I am using Castrol 10w30. I believe the pick-up tube is within the correct distance. The noise I hear sounds like it's coming from the bottom half. The noise almost sounds like a deep pinging noise, like going up a steep hill. As long as I keep the idle adjusted the noise will not occur and the oil pressure will stay above 12psi. I was wondering if a regular stock oil pump would make a difference or maybe a high pressure one. I had even thought about using 20w50 oil. What do you guys think. Or should I not worry about it? Thanks again.
