I had this problem for the last month. Think I found it yesterday. I was coming home from work when I realised that I did'nt have any oil pressure. Of couse I didn't see it until I was turning into my driveway. Then I heard the ticking!! The car was running fine yet and temp was good, but it was doing the death tick!! I pulling the dizzy and used a 1/4 socket to turn the oil pump, guess what, ya I wasn't turning anything. The pump must have died or shattered or maybe the shaft stripped out on the pump side. Shes dead, It has high miles on the bottom end. Point is she was breaking up at around 4200 for a month and I change everything I could think of without finding the problem. Hope this did'nt reck my heads!! Hope this isn't your problem!!
