  2. Hi and thanks for the valuable info. I am using 20w50 oil and it is hot here in south africa with a average temp of 35deg c I am reading the pressure off the instrument pannel and will search for a calibrating instrument to make 100perc sure thanks. I only here rattling noise on the cam box after driving hard and the temp is fairly hot but nothing on start up . Thanks for the help Hi ,i rev the engine to 5000rpm when hot and get 40psi and i luckily dont here any rumbles or knocking yet but do get a rattling noise on the cam box when the engine is hot. i have a mechanical pressure guage. Thanks for the info
  3. Hi if u only get 12 volts most likly your voltage reg has popped and is easy to replace ,it is the little black box facing u on the back of the alternator if it is a motorola,be careful not to mix the wires on reinstalation as u can pop the alernators rectifier.
