My 69 Corvette, 350 4spd, was stored for about 4 years. When I went to bring it home, the oil gauge showed no oil pressure. I put an auxilary gauge on it and it showed about 5 lbs at idle up to maybe 25 at 2000 rpm. In 03, I put in a new oil pump, did head work, but not sure if I put in rings. I had been autocrossing that engine, but it was in good shape, just wanted to check it out at the time. So, after working on it in 03, it ran great, no oil problems until I put it in storage in 08. I've changed oil and filter, but no change. It doesn't smoke. I haven't checked the compression yet. It's a 300 hp with the 350 hp cam. Otherwise, stock. Any ideas?
