Hello, new to the board. I have a IH 364 with BD 154 diesel. I've installed a new oil pump, new gauge, new filter, and new oil pan. Cold it only has about 20 lbs. hot, I'm lucky to see 5 lbs. Any ideas? It also runs a little rough, seems to skip with black smoke. Prior to this, the only heavy work was
I replaced #1 rod bearing when it spun.

Maballance,

Low oil pressure is a good sign of internal engine wear. The increased gap (due to wear) between the rods and crank......as well as the gap between the mains and crankshaft will allow oil to escape. When this happens, the pressure drops significantly.

A heavier engine oil may get you by for a while.......but the fat lady is warming up behind the curtains.

Joel ....

Joel,
It sounds like I should have listen to the fat lady sing before I bought my kubota from a local dealer.
The dealer has approached me with a deal to fix THEIR problem.
Get this,..... Early this week he calls. We can fix the valve for you. How much, I ask. 300 for the parts not counting the labor. Come on Jeff, I gave you full price and it's defective. Ok, he says. Calls ack and says, ok you buy the parts and we will rebuild it for you. How much is my cost? I ask. 300, he says.
I eventually said ok. Then he says, can you get it over here? Well, I guess I can try., I said.
Then I got to thinking...... Hummmm, he wants me to deliver it, pay for the parts and wait till the cows come home before I get it back, because I'm sure it will be put on the back burner. In any case, I had them deliver it because I had no way of picking it up. It was delivered defective and he is charging me to fix it.
The way I see it, he's not giving me anything but a lost season of spring work around my ranch, a headache and a bunch of grief.
I'm less than happy with my purchase from Mid Valley Tractor in Eugene Oregon on Hwy. 99 and I wouldn't recommend anyone buy anything from them. ....
