I talked to one of the old boys in town who is The Machinist and regularly builds these 428. He said there is no filter bypass in the 428 only the 427 side Oiler. He said Galley plug

This may sound dumb but hear goes. A friend had a backhoe with a diesel engine. I lost oil pressure and oil and antifreeze mixed. It had some how rusted between an oil passage and water jacket. check your antifreeze in the radiator. I hope it isn't the problem. and it is just a galley plug. If it is a galley, plug can you drill and tap it for a tapered pipe plug?

I'm not hanging a shingle for Fram, but you get what you pay for, pure and simple. (Who, in their right mind, puts a cheap filter on an expensive engine?)

A drop of Loctite Red would secure the soft plugs forever. On the positive, 25 lbs is better than nothing (Read: bearing damage) and given everything discussed so far, I believe you're on the right track.

Staying tuned to hear your findings and results...

Fingers crossed it's a soft plug. When I've lost pressure, always was quick. Awaiting update.

Yes the plug behind the distributor is in. My next step is to pull the out and do that same test. You cannot see that one behind the timing gears at all and that's the only one I haven't checked

All the rest of them are in the intake Valley and solid. I've got my drill hooked up to it as we speak so I'm going to test it out and see if I can find out where it's going
