Oil pressure too high

Post by Prowelder » 19 Aug 2016, 19:54

I have a 94 Honda 15 horsepower 4-stroke engine starts on half a pull runs great except oil pressure builds up. It blows the dipstick off and and squirt oil after running full speed for couple of minutes

Overfilled, wrong type of oil, measure oil temp, check for contaminants in oil

I doubt the oil pressure is too high but I bet the crankcase pressure might be too high. Non functioning crankcase vent, excessive blowby come to mind also.
2 stroke every time I can
4 stroke only when I have to..I don't like boating with my lawn mower
