SOURCE: why do i have to prime my oil pump after every oil

You shouldn't be having to prime the oil pump with every oil change. If you're running the original oil tank in it's original position, when you drain the tank by removing the plug at the bottom of it, the oil line from the bottom of the tank going to the oil pump is still full of oil. As long a you're not doing something to drain that line, you should not have to prime the pump. It sounds like to me that you're removing the oil feed line to the pump in order to drain the tank. If you're doing it this way, you will have to prime the pump every time. Drain the oil from the oil tank by removing the drain plug from the tank.

Good Luck
Steve

Do I need to prime the engine after it has sat for more than a year. If so how do I go about this?It is a 1986 buick century limited with the 6cyl engine.


No you do not have to prime it. But you should change oil and put 5 gallons of fresh gas in it before starting. The oil collects moisture from sitting. The gas gets stale andding more will dilute old.

Low oil pressure at rocker box


The Ironhead Sportys have a tendency to do this when the Gerotor Gear Set is worn. These are the thin set of drive gears in the oil pump. HD Part # 26492-75. Do you have a problem WET SUMPING? This is when the oil drains from the reservoir into the crank case if the bike sits for a period of time and when you attempt to start it pukes oil from the breather tube. If so you need to check these gears. Gerotor Gear Sets inner/outer clearance should be .000 the shaft should have a clearance of .0005 and the feed gear height in the pump should be .011. Normal operating pressure when hot should be 4 psi at idle and 10-20 psi at 3500 rpm. The pumps generally have issues before the rocker bushings.
