Well its looking like its going to need new mains, found some galling on the shells but crank looks like i might get away with dressing, but will talk to the engineers, whish i had stripped the oil pump sooner, as i found that some plank had fitted an end case gasket to the inside of the end plate of the pump!

So basically its increased the side tolerances of the gears providing a bypass on the pressure side, no wonder it was only making low pressure, but on measuring the actual pump shafts are out of tolerance so it looks like a replacement...think I'll paint "money pit" on the tank instead of BFG.
