does anyone here know if that over-full condition would really mess something up, since we are sure that the crank was frothing up the oil?
is his oil pressure problem permanent, or can we possibly run some sea foam through it to clean it out? a friend of mine told me that the really crappy oil may have clogged up his oil pump or i suggested maybe the oil passages and a good cleaner may be needed. any ideas from you guys? by the way, it's a big block 454

did the old oil smell like anything at all other than oil ?
was it real thin and like water runny ?
i suspect something is bad wrong
ruptured fuel pump or something else bad
need more details/info here

funny you should mention the fuel pump, since his is leaking like a sieve. i heard that too much oil would mess with stuff like the oil pan gasket and whatnot. the oil was not very viscous, but it didnt have any foreign matter or anything in it. I can tell he messed it up over time because he said it used to have 60 pounds of pressure on the guage and now it will only make it up to 15 or 20 on the guage no matter what rpm it is turning. when you let off the gas it spikes momentarily like many other vehicles i have noticed. when it spikes it might hit 30 pounds for a split second and jump back down to about 15. this kid really needs to stop smokin so much weed, since it makes him do stupid stuff like this
when you mention ruptured fuel pump, could it possibly have pumped fuel into the crankcase through the pushrod hole?
