Had the high volume pump installed with a new shaft and new screen.

2 hours after install, no oil pressure at idle. Had pressure throughout the RPM band after 1500 rpms.

          Unfortunately we are unable to diagnose what is wrong with your vehicle without being able to be there with your vehicle. However, I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.
