Just out of interest, noticed that the engine on this one (mums old 'un) has been quieter since I replaced the cam, followers & tappets, and gave it a good service, but as has been the case for a while, when you remove the filler cap the engine seems to want to cut out. This tells me that the oil pressure is low, but what causes it in these usually.

The engine doesnt seem to leak or burn oil, mileage is around 120k. Would it possibly be the oil pump?

Cheers

not really, runs fine, still slightly tappy (but manifold has a blow i think), a bit down on power, doesnt overheat, doesnt use water or oil. its been this way for about 40,000 miles lol.

edit - no oil pressure light showing
