have you verified pressure with a mechanical gauge? did you check the bearings?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No, the mechanic I went to said he didn't know how to recreate the situation because it was so specifc so he didn't help me with that. What bearings? Engine bearings? I did have an oil leak and the head gasket was repaired last year... If that helps to know?
