Hi all trying to finish engine build and checking oil pressure with a drill im at 120psi and fluctuating,this is with 30 w breakin oil. its a kaase pump that I've enlarged the inlet and outlet. Have I caused this with my mods or do I have another problem?

Thanks for your thoughts
Dan

Sounds like the by-pass is stuck closed; sure could be something else, though.

I would say it's the straight weight oil you are running. I would not rev it up when it is cold.
