Has anyone had an oil pump go bad,I just replaced the piston,rings and crankshaft in my Rancher.I thought the fan had caused the problem to start with.We got it running and it ran great for about 20 minutes when it seized up.****.I pulled the head again and discovered a lack of top end oil.By this time it would turn over fine with the starter so I spun it over and over and no oil came through the outlet in the head or through the one leading to the oil cooler.Now Im screwed again.

I just registered to reply to this. I also suspect the oil filter is in backwards. it won't oil the topend if its in backwards.
