Depending on the age of your last overhaul. Some engines can develop low or fluxuating oil pressure.
Places to check.
Oil pressure Relief Plate (By Pass Plate)
If at one time metal has ever went through your engine your oil pressure relief plate could had small metal particles that went between the wall of the plate and theoutside of the plunger. If this happens it will scar the outside wall of the plunger and can also damage the inside wall of the plate. This will cause low oil pressure. This is always a good place to check for causes of low oil pressure. If your plunger is scard on the outside you need to check the inside wall of the plate for damage.
Some engines can also have a sticking plunger. which can cause fluxuating oil pressure. You also have the oil pressure spring in front of the plunger and ut does get weak over a period of time.
If your plate is in good shape internally. You might want to pull your oil pan off and check your screen to see if it’s plugged up. You have a oil screen that is attached to a tube that is attached to the back of your oil pump.
