The psi is obtained by a maths formula. Surface area x height by atmospheric pressure ( That is 3.1416x radius squared x height x 14.7lbsSQ") Do the calculations on the first height then repeat the exercise for the new height and that is the increase you will get in pressure.

I have a 79 ford f-150 with a 351w modified engine. when i first start the engine it has approx. 65 psi oil pressure. as the engine warms up the pressure slowly drops off to around 12 psi.the oil is clear...


First off its not a 351W modified. you are confusing two different blocks. its either a 351 windsor or a 351m (modified) and if it is the modified its not that bad. these engines are notorious for having low oil pressure. at idle they can be anywhere between 10 and 40. as long as you gain 10 psi per 1000 rpm its fine. and a pump doesnt drop off as it gets warm. it either works or it doesnt, oil pressure dropping off is a bottom end bearing problem

Overheating,leakage in overflow tank and under car


I had this problem with my 6.0L diesel. It turned out to be the head gasket. Compression psi was getting into the water jacket in the cylinder head and forcing all the water out through the overflow bottle. Check the psi of the overflow water reservoir, especially under load (acceleration, etc).

The sunroof drainage gets blocked.

your footwells will fill with water - even under your seats right to the back seats footwells

See two 10mm holes in front sides when sunroof is open.
a) push a flexible cable down from the top - it comes out just behind the front wheels. (use electric three core cable - or TV aerial cable - a hanger is too short) - you need about a metre and a half)
b) remove the inner mudgaurd behind the front wheels (2 screws) you will see the end of the plastic drainage pipes - remove the blocked black rubber cup at the end of these - why they are there is anybody's guess)
