Well everyone, I received a 1952 mt from a friend probably close to 9 years ago now, and I recently got the courage to try an get her running. Well after few days tinkering, rebuilding carb, rewiring, I got her running. Sounds amazing. Dropped pan, cleaned out block, and got gunk outta pan. My question is can the hydraulic pump backwards into the block? My oil level rises, and the touchomatic has slowed. Was working like new. Now it's slow to rise, and almost falls down when levers are pushed forward. Well thanks.
