Re: Ohh look at that ..😏

I had three others look at it, one being the machinist I use for headwork. We all came to the conclusion that it is not a crack just score or imperfection in it. So it's in !

Re: Ohh look at that ..😏

I had a look through my X10 eye loop and I think it's just a scored line rather than a crack, I can see pitting in it. I wish my phone had a macro setting.

Re: low oil pressure

The main thing is to see pressure at rpm when HOT, you can go by the 10 lbs per 1000 rpm . It's not uncommon to see almost zero (and that will depend on your gauge) at idle.
