  1. Bought a new oil pump, Melling high volume. Would you guys happen to have any tips on how to get the pickup tube onto the pump? I read it’s supposed to be a tight fit but I can’t seem to get any bit of the pickup tube onto the pump
  2. Concur. Expect an email once the sale is active
  3. Ok, will do. Thanks, all! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Welp, hooked it up to a manual gauge and it read 0 psi and the highest being 5 psi. Wanted to make sure there was still oil being pumped so I, again, took the sending unit off and out came a strong, solid stream of oil. And just to double tap on the pressure reading, I hooked up another oil pressure gauge and same readings, but the highest was 10 psi. And it passed the test that you recommend I do. Any suggestions? Diagnosis? I do plan on getting a new sender (part # PS133 or PS155?) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Engine cold, ignition off: 0 ignition turned on: 0 engine started at idle speed: 0 engine 2k RPM idle speed: 0 at operating temp... idle speed: 0 run engine up to 2k RPM: flickered to 40 then back to zero once, haven’t seen it happen again yes, I primed at reinstall. My gramps told me to take the sending unit off and start the engine to verify if the oil pump was even pumping, and it was. So I guess we can eliminate the oil pump failure? still haven’t attached a manual oil pressure gauge for verification. Will report back once done.
  6. And just because the devil’s in the details, the truck hasn’t overheated throughout all this. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. C will report back when complete. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I’m running 5-30 for oil at 70 degrees in humid South Carolina. As for the readings at operating temperature, still 0 on the oil pressure gauge Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Reads 0 ohms before and when I started the truck Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Apologies on reviving an old thread. A month ago I took the oil pan off to replace the gasket and RMS. Doing so, I took the oil pump off to fully remove the oil pan from under the truck. Putting everything back together and starting the truck, I noticed the oil pressure gauge now sits at zero regardless of how long I’ve been driving it. I’ve replaced the sending unit. I’ve disconnected the wire, and the needle went far right, grounded the wire, and the needle went far left (0). I also took the sending unit off and stuck a zip-tie in to see if there was sludge build up, but nothing but clean, cold oil (after running it for 5 minutes). Could it be a bad oil pump? Just wanted to confirm and get input.
  11. That’s the plan! Thanks for all the help, guys. Truly appreciate it
  12. Yeah, I figured Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Found the source of the snap, crackle, pop.
  14. Certain as the DIY. Followed everything as stated, ensuring the slider was engaged before and after putting on the cover.
