    I am going to make every effort to NOT tear it down and try what you are describing. Also remove rear galley plug to facilitate cleaning.

    Your right Captain, a cold motor or oil would drive up pressures, but my engine runs that high all the time--- hot or cold. I did this without the engine running and a NEW gauge to make sure this...
