Well this is how I got the rear bolts back on, I too my socket and filled it almost full of paper, this way the bolt could twist to get the right angle. Without the paper the bolt sunk too far in the socket and you can't get the correct angle to get it started.

Rick, I just roll it over on the engine stand and get busy with the impact

And it is a no brainer why this engine had low oil pressure

Pick it up with the chain hoist so you don't have to stand on your head. :D

Yes, Bill, I'm still with you. I've made lots of notes and will post what I find as I go through. I have replaced the gauge with two other gauges.

Here is what I posted last Saturday about my results:

"I tried replacing the oil pressure gauge on the Cub with ones from another Farmall and an A-C. The new one for the Cub says I hardly have any pressure; the other Farmall gauge says that the pressure is OK at about 20 psi; the gauge from the A-C says that the oil pressure is great.

So, who knows?"

My next project will be the oil pick-up and pressure regulator spring.

Thanks for all of the help.

Rick before taking any thing apart test your gauge. I have an aircompressor with a regulater lower the pressure to 20 lbs. rig up a little plumbing and test your gauge. From what you say 2 show good pressure. You are probably ok then, but prove it with taking any thing apart.
