Q1 is the oil pump going
Q2 is there a blockage some where
Q3 can flushing out the engine clear any thing that is blocking the way
please respond to this request
thanks from peter
Depending in the mileage, sometimes the crankshaft bearings were out lowering the oil pressure. including an additive or one grade heavier oil could solve the tappets clicking. Also check the connections to the fuel injectors and the gas pressure to the injectors.
