    lost oil pressure while driving engine was full of oil and no leaks. pulled motor to take a look at the oil pump and drive (and to check bearings after loosing pressure) every thing looked new so went to top side of engine and pulled out oil pump drive which installs were the distributer belongs and drives off the jackshaft (camshaft) to run the oil pump. when i removed the oil pump drive it was as plain as day the gear had worn into the housing 3/4 inch until it disconnected from oil pump drive. thought it might be usefull no one i talked to had heard of it
