Hello all, First time here!! Great Site!!
Why is oil pressure 45-50 at start up but 5-10 when hot?? Using 10-30 with oil pressure plate & spring kit I got many years ago from GSCA or Kirban. I don't remember who. No leaks anywhere. Any Ideas??

Worn oil pump gears?/worn housing

Nylon off timing gear pluggin up oil pick up in pan.

What do you consider "hot"?

Also - might just be worn bearings. frown
Try 10-40 in the summertime..
