    Oil pump is not worst case, If the main bearings or the rod bearings are wearing out it will do the same thing when it gets hot it will lose oil pressure.

    there have been a few 140's that have oil presure probs due to a part coming loose inside the motor
    there have also been rusty oil filters causing the oil to leak out , that would be the simplest thing to fix

    Oil Pressure Prob?

    Where is the oil pressure prob I bought the thing,cross your fingers for me!
    I checked the oil when I picked it up and it was about 1/4 inch on the stick.
    I was told it just got a SBT engine in it a year or so ago.

    FX140 Oil Pressure problem

    I found the problem, the center main bearing looks like when it was going togather the it got over laped a little bit with the other half of the bearing. On that jernal only one side of the crank has minor scoring.
    All the other bearing are fine. I'd say SBT is going to get a call. This is an SBT engine but from what I can tell it was put in in 2006.
