Had blown head gaskets, replaced engine gasket set, heads, valve covers, egr, o rings, thermostat, lower and upper manifolds, heads machined, fluxed, new valves,flushed radiator, oil change, new water pump, plugs, wires, disasembled to shortblock, follewd torque specs with rfequired componants, why does it say low oil preeure/no reading???
Was the oil changed? Has the low pressure been verified with a mechanical test gauge at the oil pressure sending unit pressure port? Do that 1st before assuming the pressure is low.

22 foot lbs. for the lower and 8 to 10 for the upper. tighten these bolts in a criss cross pattern, also make sure to put teflon sealant on the lower intake bolts to make sure oil does not weep up the threads, and it also helps to ensure they don't loosen.

the torque spec's require you to tightened to 10 ft lbs and then tighten another 30 degress which will give you about 12 to 15 ft lbs of torque. make sure that you start in the middle and work your way out when tightening manifold because it will crack easily.
