T500 oil pump again!

Post by RossB »

Hey guys
My 73 T500 running well but noticed that right side oil lines just not staying full.I reveiwed all threads looking for this condition redid all lines with new Kawasaki banjo valves with no issues for a couple years. What I'm finding is that the oil just will not feed to banjos almost like its feeding back into pump Took off line filled it up let it hang over night didn't no air bubbles,pumped oil in lines there clear.Pulled feed line for that side kicked it over could see oil being pumped from oil pump. Rebuilt the oil pump a couple years ago too. After priming lines and taking it for ride works fine after a few miles is starts back feeding,no leaks around pump it's like pump doesn't have enough pressure?
