When you rebuilt the engine, did you replace the oil pump? Not replacing it a common mistake people make. If your have no pressure and it's pecking, don't continue driving it until the pump is replaced or you'll spin a rod bearing and ruin your crankshaft at the least, your block at worst. Good luck.

Getting loud and leaking Where is the cheapest

Before you buy a whole new pump, you can replace, or rebuilt just the motor. Your problem is a little vague, are you running this on a pool pump? you said it's leaking. If it it is leaking at the pump shaft seal this is easy to replace, and if the motor is getting load the bearings are probably going out.. you can buy a motor online, or at any pools supply house and replace it yourself, or have them do it. If your not familiar with this type of work, I would recomend taking the motor, or the whole pump into a pool pump repair shop. they will completely rebuild it for you with a new or rebuilt motor depending on your preference. Hope this helps. If you need further assistance post a reply in the comments, and don't hesitate to leave a good thumb rating if you found this helpful. Thanks, and good Luck!

Im getting a loud buzzing noise when the pump is running

could be an obstruction in the impeller, or the bearings going out. You can split the pump in two be removing the large clamp or 4-6 bolts holding the two halves together. (not the 4 bolts holding the motor to seal plate, but the the bolts holding the seal plate to the seal plate housing. once you remove the clamp or bolts, the motor with seal plate and impeller and diffuser can all be pulled back away from the pump. You need to remove the diffuser (plastic housing that goes around the impeller) usually by a series of 3 to 6 small screws. Now you can easily try and spin the impeller and check for obstructions that might have bound it. If you do not see anything stuck in the impeller, then the noise is likely coming from the motor (probably the bearings) you can replace the motor, or have it rebuilt. if your not gunna rebuild it you can deal with it as long as the noise doesn't bother you and the motor is not getting too hot

Pump Very Noisy Have dismantled moving parts and no difference so deduced that it must be electric motor, how do I replace brushes?

sounds like you need to replace the bearings. You may be better off either taking the motor to be rebuilt or getting a new motor with a warranty. It is a process to replace the bearings if you have never done it before.

Motor hums but does not pump

Unplug the pump and spin it by hand. Then plug it back in and it may take off. If it does not you will have to have the pump rebuilt or replaced.
