What could cause 97 HPOP draining?

I have a 97 freszh rebuilt engine that won't start. Has started maybe 3 times over 15 minutes of trying over several days. I think my problem is the HPOP is draining to fast . It will drainback all the way over night . From my research it says that a 97 doesn't have a check valve but a stand pipe so what could cause it to drain?

Thanks in advance

Andy

So, it drains on its own with no cranking? Or, is it draining aftercranking? Did whomever rebuilt the motor use your 97 front cover? Cheers!

Good morning Patrick,
Turns out my engine was shot we went with a .030 over factory rebuild kit. I'm starting to wonder weather it was a good shop . Kit came with a lpop but the engine sat for a couple months and i don't know if he be lube it but I think the lpop is bad because I filled the hpop yesterday and it started for a couple of seconds but then died and the hpop was empty again. I assume the lpop is not filling the hpop correct?
Looks like replacing the lpop isn't that hard. Do u have to drain the oil?
Factory pump is cheaper than Advance which is better?

Thanks
andy

I'd go with the factory pump if you're going to eplace it. I think it's fairly straightforward and you'll have to remove the Crank Damper (and probably the fan/clutch, radiator, etc.). I imagine you'll also need to drain oil and coolant. Cheers!

Well you were correct fan needed to come out and it made it easy by pulling the radiator. Really starting to question the shop I used they put the pump in backwards slightly scorch the engine cover. I hate going back somewhere and telling them they our me $400 in parts for an error on their part . I got them a factory overhaul kit and the instruction's had a special page about the way the oil pump needed to face.
I guess that is why I turn my own wrenches. I'll keep you posted.

thanks
Andy
