Lets not leave out the fact that I had to pay a mechanic to do all this work. My 300zx is still dead, but this time I'm saving the money for conceptZperformance. Do not waste any money/time with Arley, save it and go with the proven.
Did you put a new oil pan on the engine before you installed it? If not, that is almost certainly why you don't have oil pressure. 99% of the Japanese import engines you buy have been sitting on the floor on their oil pan. That dents the bottom. The oil pump is very close to the oil pan, & when the pan get dented, it keeps the pump from being able to suck in oil. Install a new oil pan & you will almost certainly have good oil pressure.
