I have clocked about 400 miles since a complete overhaul on my car and engine
am experiencing some pretty low oil pressure at 40 to 50 pounds on the

The car runs smooth, idles well,  no oil leaks (yet) ,   I am using Castrol
20-50  now since
I changed from the Valvoline 20-50 plus a break in oil , which I ran for about
300 miles.
Changing the oil made no difference.  I do have other gauges that I could swap
out and test .

My main thought is that I am using a Moss spin on oil filter adaptor that I
purchased back in 1998.
Seems to me there were some issues with some of these units and I am wondering
if this could
be the cause of low oil pressure.   This is the one piece unit that allows a
screw on  filter to be used
and the filter sticks straight out from the engine.   All internal/external
engine parts are new or rebuilt.

Any advise appreciated,   Mark
