Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

Replacing this plate should resume oil pressure issues here.Make sure you have no oil sludge build up needing cleaned as this can cause a fault as well here.The bearing tolerances should be o.k. still.
