Low Oil Pressure and The Oil Filter

Do you have a problem with the low oil pressure sensor on your generator? Chances are it is fine and really all that is wrong is your o-ring on your oil filter getting in the way. When it is not fitted correctly and the oil filter does not seat properly inside the engine it results in low oil pressure. Either oil can not make its way up to the pump or it sucks in air from the leaking o-ring resulting in nothing being pumped up to the sensor and the rest of the engine.

Is this oil pump good?
Trying to found out if my oil pump is good or not. I turning it with my 1/2 impact with min air pressure. THE ENGINE HAS NO BEARING OR RODS. THE BLOCK AND CRANK ARE BAD-CAN"T BE RE-USED. So as everyone can see it's pumping oil. It's pumping faster then I can pour it in. What do you think? Update-1: Oil Pump is perfect shape. IPSmotorsports said it was bad. Their stupid to be running a shop. They will never work on any of my cars again. The new rebuilt short block only lasted 735miles. They still will not back their own work. Update-2: Had the oil pump checked out by engineers. They told me that the oil pump was 100% good. p.s. All the oil is going into a big tub that you can't see in video :)

How To Check Oil Pressure -EricTheCarGuy
If you have an oil pressure warning light on, or your oil pressure gauge reads low, it may be time to check the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge. You need to determine if it's a problem with the sending unit or if you really do have low oil pressure. This video will walk you through the steps of how to check oil pressure on your engine. It may not be as easy to do for you as it was for me, but once you do the test you'll know for sure if it's time for engine work, or if it's time for a new sending unit.
