Thanks Greg, I haven't driven the car yet because of the high pressure. Since the gauge only goes to 100 the pressure pegged the gauge and broke it (the needle went back in the gauge where you cant see it) so I didn't warm it all the way up. All of the bearings were plastic gauged and were well within tolerances. Crank turned ect. I had read several posts about rebuilding the relief valve and thought that may have some impact. I have also read that it could be a blocked oil galley. I didn't put it together at the time but earlier (a few months ago) I tried to start it and the oil filter blew off. I thought I had not tightened it during installation but now I'm not sure.
