    Zero Oil Pressure Situation

    Two seeming unconnected issues with the Vette. Following a 'tussle' out there on the street with a buddy in his 'huffed' C5Z06 I had a zero oil pressure situation. Recovery back home and an inspection shows following. Sheared oil pump drive - seeming caused by debris seizing the oil pump. Something additional was the 'detached' windage tray (failed welds?) - finally dropping down following a 'beating from con rod no.3

    'Pulled' a cap off a rod - surprisingly it looks good. Journal is still 'polished' - what appear to be 'rotary' scratches on shell are 'polished' high spots. No sign of 'blueing' or burnishing.
