Thanks for the initial update on your rebuilt Perkins. The Perkins 4-154 manual that I just checked is showing the normal oil pressure to be between 30-60 PSI or about 2.1- 4.2 bar at “maximum engine speed”. They do not seem to list an idling oil pressure. What was the initial oil pressure when the engine was first started and cold? How is the oil pressure at your normal cruising RPM? Is there any chance that your oil pressure gauge is not reading correctly? I am really happy that the engine seems to be running so well for you. Were you unable to find a replacement oil pump for your engine?
