Hello Phil Paul Mark and Ian..... many thanks for your helpful replies. A
lot of useful information has been filed away.
I don't know if this means anything but I am sending an exerpt from a bill
I had from a repairer. This seems to say that there is far too much oil
swilling around in the camshaft housing.... could this be where the oil
pressure is being lost? Any help is most welcome. Thanks again Rob Romain.

The problem I would like members advice on is my lack of oil pressure. It
does not reach 40 psi until about 4000 RPM. And very little on idle, even
when cold. The oil pump looks good, the gauge is confirmed as accurate, and
new oil and filter are installed. One workshop I took the car to put in new
big end shells , saying the old ones were poor. They said they could
Not obtain new main shells but said the old ones were serviceable. A plate
on the cylinder head says 2tgeu. This cannot be true since the EU stands
for fuel injection which it isn't.
The engine block is stamped with the number 2T 813 7415.... could this
mean that the block was originally from a 2t engine which was converted to
2tg? And that during the conversion something was left out which causes the
pressure to be lost.?
Any help would be wonderfully welcome. Rob
