    Anyone know what the tolerance is supposed to be when using the plasti-gadge.
    Motor was driven 3 city blocks with oil light on. When tested at idle --- oil pressure was like 4 or 5 psi (very low) did not test under load for fear of causing further damage!
    Looks like the "key-thingey" in the oil-pump is slightly rounded.
