Only in the passageways to the bearings and lifters if so equipped. Not in the head.

I also suspect an oil cooler as the culprit.....
I am always amazed at how many people want to pull the head off their engine, without a compression test.

Yeah...as I thought about it I realized that as well about the oil pressure.

Trust me, I just want to go sailing, no desire to pull the head off.

I really appreciate the thoughts/advice/ideas.

Thanks folks.
