Re: 0360 180 High Oil Pressure

This motor does not have a vernatherm, it has the spring and plunger above the oil screen on the back of the motor.

Re: 0360 180 High Oil Pressure

Yes, vent is clear and flowing. Also, oil cooler bypass plunger was stuck down and spring bent, so that was not functioning if that will cause any pressure issues. Started pouring and have not ran after pulling plunger.

Re: 0360 180 High Oil Pressure

Ok, Finally got time to mess with boat, with spring and ball removed oil pressure is at 15-20lbs idle, so does this mean i need the low pressure spring and the wrong one is in there now?

does the oil pressure adjustment assembly adjust internally with shims in the housing behind the spring or externally with an adjustment screw and lock nut
Mine adjusts with washers.

0360 180 High Oil Pressure

On startup at idle im about 65-70lbs, once warmed up idle is 60lbs. Cruise RPM and im well over 100lbs and blowing seals. No spacers in pressure relief valve, and ball and spiring seem fine. Any ideas?

0-360 Hesitation

Have a 180 that hits a wall at 2300rpm, sputters a little bit then comes up full rpm. Carb is fresh rebuild from Gmac, wires all good. Any thoughts?
