How do I read oil pressure with my autocal?
I run my autocal to my laptop and read it there.

Another, stuff isn’t nearly that big, it’s very very fine, just looks huge where I had to zoom in. That’s the second filter change in 400 miles, I cut the filter apart and there was nothing in it so I’m assuming that’s shit that was left in the oil cooler or where I roughed up the cylinders before I put the other pistons in, or..... bunch of junk took the bearings out.

I had the oil too full earlier, drove the truck with it a quart low and oil pressure is 5-8 psi higher, makes no sense.

Reger I checked a couple times now, I'm roughly at 30psi at warm/idle, goes to
60 when accelerating. 2k rpm sees about 32psi

LMM pump is weird, mine will go to 50-55 at 23-2400 rpm and drop down to shit below 2200.

Pulled both filters apart, no aluminum that I saw, so I’m going to assume the copper is left over from the cracked piston wrist pin bushing, gonna slap some amsoil in it tomorrow or Sunday and let the good times roll til it cracks another piston, locks up or windows the block.

Now this has me curious to watch mine a little more. I know when it’s hot idling it’s down right at 20 psi. And cruising right at 50 - 55 depending on rpms.

I’m going to order an edge insight and run, I went on a rampage this morning and had the motor at 200* and the trans at 210 (50* outside) and pressure still went to 55 above 2300 rpm, gauges are junk IMO.

Stop worrying until you get digital read out from the ECM. My truck will set right where yours is on the gauge, but logging will show in the 50's cruising down the highway. Every LMM I've been in, after up to operating temp, stays right there on the gauge for the most part
