I was talking with Ron today, owner of the 81 caddy diesel pickup. He said occassionally his mechanical oil pressure guage will jump like 20 degrees while he's driving down the road.

Anybody got any experience with this? Sound's like he spun a bearing to me, but he said it will drop back down to normal later on.... which really makes it wierd and hard to diagnose. I don't have any experience with H2O VWs or diesels, so any help would be much appreciated.
thanks!

I'm sorry Clyde, did you mean psi instead of degrees?
