(SOLVED) Replaced LPOP gears now NO OIL to the oil filter canister.
(SOLVED: read below)
Before: Crank No Start. No reading on the dash oil gauge. So with oil filter removed and oil filer drain plunger closed it would crank for 17 sec before oil would enter the canister. Took 10 additional seconds to fill. 27 seconds total. Still no start.
Now: Changed out the lpop gears, front cover, and seal / wear ring. I also replaced the oil cooler, STC, standpipes, dummy plugs, and a bunch of HPOP & fuel regulator gaskets and o-rings. I get NO oil in the oil filter canister.
Findings: Even tho I installed new updated OEM parts, every old part looked good, heck looked great. Except for the oil cooler reservoir screen was torn. The lpop gears had some scoring from signs of small debri and the front cover was gouged. I removed the lpop gears and oil pressure regulator, and cleaned that housing area very well, to ensure no debri was in there.
Problem: no oil to the oil filter canister as all. Could I have installed the oem lpop gears in backwards. (Does that matter?) Could I have installed the oil pressure regulator improperly. I put the spring inside of the metal sleeve then screwed it in the block. Looked correct to me.
I'm sure it is something simple. Fingers crossed.
Thanks in advance.
Drive it like you stole it, Or I will.

If your signature block picture is bigger than most peoples post, maybe it's time to fix it. I suggest you tape a photo of your truck to your computer screen, then it only screws up your view.
