I got this old brat on a trade, what y'all think? It's a one owner but hasn't been driven in 10 years. The motor had been taken apart and left for the rats to live in and chew one. I've got it cleaned up and put back together, but when it warms up at idle the oil pressure light begins to blink on and off. Is this common with these old motors or is the oil pump just weak?
