Just got done with cab off HG, studs, Updates on my 05 80k miles. No issues with truck other then high coolant pressures before. Weird string of events happened ( 3rd day of driving WOT run sit at a light and low oil pressure warning comes on) go home put a mechanical gauge on truck and im reading bar not psi and think I have 5 psi not 74 psi like I really have (idiot). Pull oil filter housing and see non metallic particles in the bottom, still thinking I have a LPOP issue and bearing material in filter. Pull cab HPOP reservoir is pretty clean, IPR screen clean, oil pan is glittery, LPOP still can see all factory machine marks on everything 100% new, remove my mechanical gauge and see the outer black ring is in BAR not PSI. I feel better knowing engine had great oil pressure for 180'F T6 5-40 but still why did I strike gold. Pulled turbo apart and it looks new inside zero in - out movement and little side to side 30k miles on ford reman. Tried to measure oil clearances but I only have pins to check bushing ID and I have under .001 from shaft to ID. Im stumped and really don't want to pull rods, and drop crank to find nothing is wrong with this engine. I replaced pushrods with the shorter 6.4 rods and the copper coating that is on the tip looks a lot like whats in my engine, any chance this is what it is?
