So while discussing my oil pressure issue with my buddy yesterday, he suggested checking my oil bypass piston and spring. In preparation, I ordered a new OEM Spring and piston and, since they were just $7.95, I also ordered a "high pressure" spring and piston.
In searching the Internet, I can't seem to make sense of this. It seems to me that a heavier spring would have zero effect on oil pressure and, even worse, greatly decrease the time the oil cooler was bypassed, increasing warm up time. I can understand how a stronger spring might increase oil pressure in a dual bypass case, (in POS 2 on the flywheel side) but I'm not groking how that is possible in a single bypass case like mine.
Anyone care to post "OIl Bypass for Dummies?"
