    Get a service manual and look up how to properly service the oil pressure relief valve.
    It is a very important part of every Studebaker V8 engine and is oft-overlooked.
    Teflon tape there (Where you have it in your pic) is useless and possibly dangerous to crack a casting (1.5 wraps max on any thread in a cast hole.

      Thanks for posting that Jeff!!! My first formal training in any kind of Mechanics was during my Air Force Tech Schooling in 1965. Since that time, I have used and sold Teflon sealing tape, but for some reason had missed that detail. As one who is proud of the knowledge I have gained through the years, I am not too proud to admit that there are things I don't know. When someone comes along and provides helpful instructions, and tips, I am also not too proud to give credit where credit is due.

      I have always pretty much wrapped the tape by "intuition," and my main concern was not to allow it to extend into the fluid stream whether it be pneumatic, hydraulic, paint, or solvents.

        The Piston and Spring (3) & (4) that does ALL the work is still stuck in the Hole.

        Usually a standard wood Lead Pencil will remove it, it is supposed to be clean, Oiled and free to move.

          with all the wrapping it still was way loose, and no spring and piston around

          and it was leaking, the copper crush washer look tired and won't come out, looks like i discovered another boo boo

          broken thermostat, wonder what else this 'rebuilt engine" has lurking?

            You need a thinner, softer Copper Gasket/Washer, the original was very thin Copper and Asbestos filled, so nowadays all you can get are pure copper, but that one is TOO thick.

              Just get the oil pressure relief valve KIT from SI.
              That leak will go away, and your engine will appreciate it.

                    I'd love to hear what the oil pressure was before and what it is after the correct parts are installed.

                        This is where a bore scope comes in handy.

                          In this case, what is the purpose of Teflon? And further what is the purpose of Teflon any where?

                              Teflon tape is for (tapered) pipe threads only, not (straight) threads. That's why a copper washer is used for the straight threads. Like with the oil pan drain plug uses a washer, not teflon.
