    from the oil pressure switch, the oil flows thru this hole (see pic) to the head. When you have the head off, make sure that there isn't anything blocking the hole.

    if your throwing belts and the AC/power steering belt is tensioned correctly, you might have a bad harmonic balancer. Make sure it isn't starting to separate.

    Im just going to pull the head but this time i should probably get new bolts and gasket again. Especially if its the wrong gasket. I am really curious to see if that passageway is blocked. I appreciate the writ up for the gauge. It would make sense if the oil path is blocked then the belt might be bouncingor something or i over tensioned it. Or my tensioner has something wrong. The end of the bolt seems to be hittin the block. I will have the head off this weekend prob.. replacement will take longer. I guess i coud punch a hole in the gasket and reuse the bolts but i did have it machined so i might as well do it right. Maybe mor important to get new bolts and maybe punch a hole in the gasket. Take it apart and take my time to put it back together right. At least i will know if its blocked. Thank you for the information once again.

    Actually i m replacing tensioner and the oil pressure sensor. I disconnected a power line for an amp that was stolen. It may have been shorting. Im not sure but from other posts that could be a problem. Wouldnt cause oil issue but it could just need to get hot once....
