: If the rocker shaft that feeds the oil pressure switch is plugged then no pressure to switch but no motor problems. I have been there done that bought that>>> pull the switch crank the motor and leave the switch out see if any oil gets to the switch if not look /feel to see that the intake shaft rear of motor is open if not . THAT IS THE PROBLEM.fix pull the head pull the plugged shaft. sorry OR! drill holes in the firewall ala Korman ' s early racer and remove the distributer and housing dive out the shaft drill out the plug ? NO go with one pull the head
:Sam and dKle, Thanks,
dKle, we suspect you are right and my friend is checking it out.
Sam, it turns out that this was a "good" mistake. There are 2 rod bearings on the verge of hurting the crank so we caught it just in time. And yes, the O ring was there.
