Question about Cars & Trucks
Rebuilt case188d complet over haul run motor and wartyer got oil coming thure lifter
Head gasket is not sealing water jacket. Coolant is seeping into the push rod hole down to the lifter. Somthing went wrong with the gasket when setting head onto block. Did you ding the gasket?.OR it's possible you got the wrong gasket. You might just get lucky if you try torquing the head bolts again. Or is it possible one of the bolts did not get torqued? One last thought, any chance the head was warped and you did not get it machined? Either way, if re torquing the head bolts does not fix it, you will have to pull the head, look real close at the gasket, probably will need to get a new gasket, check the head for trueness (flat mating surface),use a quality gasket sealer on both side of it, replace all... Yea, simple right? [Not.] Good luck with it.

My first place I check is the oil pressure switches there are several good oil lead detection kits available just pour the dye in the oil and use the ultra violet light and special glasses to find the leak I also found leaks on the distributor leaking from the hole in the housing indicating a bas shaft seal just replace the dist. if thats the case.
Please rate this a fixya if its helpful to you Thanks you, Randy

fishinic: the oil pump is on the end of the crankshaft at the front.
you may have a clogged up screen at the bottom of the oil pick up tube which goes to th bottom of the oil pan.

sadly, you motor is now about to be toast. No oil means no lubrication....no lubrication means the parts fuse together.
The damage is already done it's only a matter if time before the motor freezes.

If you have an adjustable valve train you may need to adjust the rocker arms. Remove the valve covers and look to see if there are adjusting nuts on top of them. If so, get a shop manual and a feeler gague and a couple of wrenches and screwdriver and follow instructions in manual carefully.
