  • Engine: Too much oil going into oil fill pipe.

    I usually check the shop manual for answers but cannot find any clue there or the parts manual that helps me. Is there supposed to be a restricted fitting in the oil supply line coming from the left front cylinder head to the fuel pump body. This is on a 1952 232 v-8 without oil filter, I am aware that engines with partial flow oil filters have a restrictor fitiing in the line but is this supposed to have one too? I have 40# oil pressure and there is so much oil coming into the pump push rod area it is overwhelming the breather cap and spilling all over the engine at highway speeds. There is no baffle in the tube and another 52 232 I checked did not have one either. Thanks.

    I found the answer by searching again. I found a post in which Dwain Grindinger refers to a service bulletin which advises that a 0.031 restricter fitting is to be used in the line going to the fuel pump body.

      You might try a later fill tube, my '53 has baffles in it.
