Agreed. You don't want to do the job twice.

Thanks, the kit I was looking at is from a seller called RedLine on ebay, Ive bought stuff from them before and had good service, the kit looks to have good brands.. Sealed Power, Hyper Pistons, King Bearing, Federal Mongul, Hastings etc... Looks like everything I would need, now i need to figure out what size pistons to go with and see how much it would be to have bored out.

If money is an issue, try running straight 30 weight oil. It will bring your pressure up. If you has a lot of crud, could a piece of crud not have blocked the oil passage to the sender? I was thinking about this on another engine my friend has. I was thinking of removing the oil sending unit and have someone to hold a rag over the hole and start the engine up for a few seconds to flush out anything that could be blocking the hole.

RedLine is a GREAT company. They are a dealer for the Weber conv. kits. I think you found yourself a deal!
