Hi everyone! Am still just learning all this computer stuff! Thanks for everyones info! Drained the oil, was far too much in it! Pulled off the sump pick up screen & cleaned it, found someone had been in there before and damaged the crankcase! Just to get it running to see if the oil leak had diminished, put it back together & filled with correct level. Only 1 drip now coming out which is acceptable!! Now the oil pressure is sitting at 80psi cold but when warms uo drops to 10 at idle! Also seems to be running really rich!!! It has a solex carby on it! Any thoughts as to what i should look for first? Thanks!!!

10 psi per 1000 revs is adequate with a warm engine.
