Some people make up things to post and this might be a good example!!!
So back to the original posters problem, why no oil pressure?

Are you deaf and dumb, or just ? NO NEED TO SHOUT!!!!!

If a portion of the pumps output when the plug is missing is now serving only to circulate oil in a circle, and is not fully dedicated to filling the oiling system, cannot you understand how that could cause a loss of SOME (not ALL, and not saying 20psi, either) pressure taken by a gauge at the top of the engine?

My last word on the subject remains:

The oil is going to go the path of least resistance and not going to circulate like you are making up.

Go over on the Corvette forum as I posted years ago I was doing tests on circle track oil pans and purposely removed the plug under the rear cap on the last test and guess what no oil pressure change at all if any thing at idle there was more pressure. HMMMMMMMM

Instead of making up **** post factual info. LMAO I can tell you base your info on hear say and books. POST REAL INFO AND DON'T GO BY HEAR SAY OR MAKE STUFF UP

The link from speedtalk I posted had some of the top engine builders post that that your hero did not know what he was talking about LOL

Here it is again
PLUG UNDER REAR CAP • Speed Talk

If you can read look this over

It's this type of thing I find oddly curious about you. It doesn't matter how many times a concept is explained to you- I do not know Mr. Lingenfelter. Never owned nor have I read any of his publications. He is not a "hero" of mine. I cannot be any clearer on this- the ONLY reason his name was brought up was to try to illustrate to you that "this info has been circulating for ages. It appears in reputable publications..." and that by repeating that info, the guy above wasn't "making things up"!

That's not to say I don't think Lingenfelter the man had a LOT of expertise in the field- I believe he did and I believe the same guys you said who thought he was wrong about the oil plug at speedtalk would readily agree.

But John Lingenfelter is dead. He cannot be asked to defend or even explain his position. I gave you my take on it- and right or wrong- either way- I can live w/it. But I also believe you are jealous of Mr. Lingenfelter. He has done things and gotten the admiration and respect that you will NEVER see, even if you lived to be five hundred.

BTW, what's up w/the same info being repeated in another thread 350 chevy, oil pressure drops to zero when warm, running the same time as this thread! I don't see you over there trying to bully HIM! Oh, that's right. He has some authority. That often scares off a wannabe bully.LOL

I don't try to bully any one but there are guys like you who don't have any clue what they are talking about do you get my drift !!!

Why do make up things about the oild circulating as its BS if its still got pressure its going to push oil every where that for sure.

Lie I said some of the top engine builders in the U.S. say your wrong as well as my self LOL

Gentleman...This is a great discussion. I hope it comes to an agreeable point by all, and something that makes sense.
On another note... using a CIVIL tone here is going to have to be the way it happens.
Name calling and condescending words are not going to be tolerated.
I myself do not appreciate the tone this post has taken, and I am sure the readers and OP are long gone also.
Clean it up fellas. Maybe someone should apologize.
lets get back to the real issue here.
Its nice to be important...but its important to be nice.
