No oil from feed

Recommended Posts

Ok so after a few months of upgrading the turbo on my RB25DET Neo, had new manifold, top mount holset hx32, custom oil feed line, return and exhaust. bla bla all the required parts, primes the turbo with new oil, removed spark and cranked engine over. No oil what so ever came out of the oil feed line, tried cranking about 4 times. Still nothing. Removed oil feed like completely from the block to check for any possible blockages and kinks. The line is good. So I left the line off the block and cranked a couple times and not even a drop of oil cane out the side of the block ! It’s been sitting in my drive and last time it was started was July, could the oil pump be seized? checked the dipstick the oil still looked quite clean (still gold tbh) and no sludge. Should I take the sump off and inspect the pickup tube ? Need advice please 

 

Rory.

Put the line in a bottle, start and run the car for all of 1 second, oil will piss out.

If you're scared of running the new turbo without a feed for a second just take it off and start it for a sec, easier than taking the sump off without removing the whole engine

Ok seems a good idea, I’ll give it a shot.

thanks
