It is nice to see that people take the time to use lint free rags when wiping out the sump of an engine. Sad when they decide to leave it in there.

So far my most wildest reason why the engine built up no lube oil pressure. My other is when the pickup tube fell off my Caterpillar oil pump at 700 hours...

That is from a Sulzer engine, last overhaul completed in 2010. I found that yesterday, you can imagine how I felt...

My peeve was an oil drain plug on a CAT 3512B that, according to the engineer, "just fell out" .

Seized both cams and spun them. We had to strip the engine down to the block and have it line bored.
