Oil pressurer

ford
f100

#1

I just bought a 1969 ford f100 ranger with a 1979 351 clevland engine.It had sat for 5 years when i got it. It started fine and has no black smoke but i cannt get any oil pressure. Is this motor done or is there something i can do to fix it cheaply


#2

What are you using to measure the oil pressure?


#3

Check the oil pressure with a calibrated oil pressure gauge. The dash gauge may be defective. If the check shows no oil pressure then see a good, independent mechanic. Did you change the oil?


#4

How did you determine there is no oil pressure? The dash gauge? They are not reliable after 40 years…NOTHING on this vehicle will be reliable.

Check the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge connected to where the oil-pressure sender is now, usually near the oil filter…
