Hi guys,
This has probably been asked before but...
I currently have restrictors in my 372C. The rear lifter gallery restrictor is opened up to .125 for a hyd. cam.
I am currently running a high volume pump.
I think this pump is emptying the oil pan on high rpm bursts.
Can I switch to a standard volume pump with the 100psi moroso spring and still oil the lifters?

There is no need to do that. The high volume pump is not your problem nor is it emptying the oil pan. Why are you suspect?

Above 5K rpm the lifters seem to leak down.
I really doubt Eaton Lifters can't rev to 6K.
I have the reccomended Isky valve train.
What is your opinion Alex?

What type of oil pan? If there are no baffles in it maybe the oil is moving away from the pickup on hard blasts and sucking air. Roger

It is an SVO chrome pan with a baffle.
I have a Canton 7 quart road race pan waiting to go on.

The road race pan will cure it. Stock 351C pans suck.
