So I owned two Starquest many of years ago. Just picked one up cheap off a friend of a friend. Heres the problem an the story Ive been told. What should I do/try first?

Previous owner was drivng the car and it started to smoke. He brought it to a mechanic to see what was wrong with it. They replaced the bearings and nothing else. Now the car knocks its face off. No oil presure to the top of the motor. Is the motor shot? Did they do something wrong? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated

Straight to the point answer.  Take the motor apart and re build it properly all to specs  Only way you will like it and be happy. He said she said doesn't cut it in my opinion. People lie to sell you crap or just have no idea what's wrong w it and dont wanna put a penny towards it. These motors are very simple to re build yourself.

I wonder if they used the wrong gasket for oil pump if they used a new gasket set when pulling it apart or something with pick up/ o ring. If they didn't tank or clean out engine the oil passages could be full of junk. It's inevitable to pull it apart at this point.
