Had to replace the oil pan on my 38, so while I was in there I changed the oil pump to a GM Z-28 hi-volume pump that I had on the shelf. I have about 70 PSI on start up and then it goes to 50 PSI when hot, today when I got on it, lots of blue smoke, engine has maybe 40,000 since rebuild, and never been overheated. Is it possible for the oil pressure to be so high that it pushes past the rings, I have never seen it before, of course that doesn't mean it can't happen. Had 30 PSI before I changed the pump, probably should have left it alone. What do you all think?
