That's what I was thinking but according to the cheapo oil pressure gauge It had plenty of oil, was always above 20psi when fully warm at idle. And it gradually climbed with rpm. Just made me curious. Would a dry start condition do this? It was supposed to have been "rebuild". But shortly after I got it I had to reset all the lifters, replace new starte (wasn't shimmed properly), fuel pump, carb and now the timing chain went out!! The best part is that all the reciepts are in the glovebox form the shop that did all the work!!
