V-8 Engine Oil Pump

The oiling system is probably the ONLY significant weak point of the Packard V-8 engine compared to its contemporaries. In any engine, IF oil is NOT delivered without interruption or aeration, then BAD THINGS HAPPEN and this is the case with the Packard V-8. Opinions vary as to why there is a problem under certain conditions. For a real solution, see the Oldsmobile 455 High Volume oil pump adapter kit developed by the Packard V-8 Club. The author was a major contributor to that project.
