I was going to ask that as well, you can pull the sender and put a gauge in that hole. Then make sure you have good oil pressure. Some vendors sell a special oil filter bolt so you can add a gauge there as well. I put a "T" fitting under my sender, then run a short line to gauge.

I had a squeek from several valves in my 110 engine and it turned out the oil suction tube had fallen out of the block. The engine was only getting oil if completely filled or over filled. Once I reinstalled the suction tube and put the clamp on it everything was fine. A previous owner had forgotten to put the clamp on.

I turned it over and the squeak was gone. And no I’m not replacing the lifters I lent rocker arms my bad.

Went to the auto parts store today to try and find an oil pressure gauge but all they had was mechanical ones. I was going to order an electronic one tonight.

Mechanical is the best for now, they are cheap and accurate. Just get a fitting to screw in where your low pressure sender is, or get a "T" and have both.

While apart, roll the push rods on a flat surface to check for bent ones.
