    so I might have an opportunity to pick up a B18B longblock cheap, the only prob with it is before it came out of the car the oil light came on. The kid checked the oil level, gauge and sensor and all checked ok, he's assuming it needs an oil pump which sounds like a reasonable guess. What else could it likely be- cracked oil passage somewhere?

    normally, low oil pressure is caused by worn-out bearings
