cummins L10, no oil pressure
we have a case 9250 tractor that has a cummins L10 engine in it. we were doing field work with it today when it lost oil pressure while running at idle speed. we shut it down and towed it to our shop. it probably ran for no more than a minute or two with no oil pressure. i dropped the oil pan and found that the oil pick-up tube had fallen down into the pan. i'm going to reinstall the pick-up tube ( with lock-tite this time ) and oil pan next week but was just wondering if there is anything else i should check out or do before i start the engine again. i was thinking of disconnecting the fuel shut-off valve and just cranking it over a few times before actually starting it.
