    I was woundering if I get at an bad angle will my truck's oil pump be covered or do I need to worry about this?
    Thanks Mike

    I had my K5 diesel out this weekend on some steep stuff, and I was keeping a close eye on the pressure gauge. I was surprised to see I never lost oil pressure the entire time I was on the trail.

    I took my Diesel out last weekend to Potosi with the gang on here and my rear main seal stopped leaking. Go figure!!

    I've put some HMMWVs at a pretty good angle, with a eye on the oil pressure guage. Didn't see it drop any. If you're real concerned there is a device known as a "Accusump" that works as a accumilator for pressurized engine oil. 'Think Summit has them.
