Default Money Pit!!

This Trident is turning into a money pit, after the clutch being a pain and needing replacing, it now seems that the oil pump has the same idea, oil pressure has been a bit low and now its dropping to just about zero when hot, even with shimming the pressure relief valve, it also tends to smoke a bit when idelling,
So i suspect the pump is also not scavenging, so its back to Hyde for a new pump, just hope that the rod and center main are also not worn and contributing to the low pressure, i think its going to be a full engine rebuild during the winter .....if it makes it that long.
