Be SURE to have an experienced tech replace the oil pump drive gear BUSHING. It is still available and will allow the gears to shear and sieze the engine. These are strong, and I mean strong engines. I owned a 67 250SE with power everything. I bought it with 0 oil pressure. I replaced the gear for the oil pump and the bushing and drove it for a long time. (this is in reference to an m129-m130 engine, if you have a m110, disregaurd message.)
