will do an update when returning to home port in 2019
Just to complete results of trial run, oïl pressure went down to 1 bar at 700 rpm after 3 hrs running (cooling maintained at 70°C).
Engine purring nicely, no leaks.
I book it to the ol pump condition (scored innards).
Added Wynn's Supercharge to thicken oïl & oïl pressure went up to 1.2 bar at 700 Rpm; much better but temporary solution.
Thinking of adding one oïl pump piggy-back on engine (oïl cooling hoses) either driven by pulley or electric. Will pursue.

Thanks for taking the time to update us on your freshly rebuilt 4-154 along with verifying the cause of the failure. I hope that the engine provides you many years of good service. If not too much trouble, could you do another update in 1-2 years on how the engine has held up?
