    Indeed, Ball bearings can run almost zero oil pressure but his engine can't. He will not need an extra electric oil pump, the engine can and will supply what is needed.

    Yes it is a dual-ball bearing unit. Good to hear. I'll start with a 0.04"/1mm restrictor as Garrett recommends and progress as planned. I'm planning to rig a temporary in-line oil pressure gauge to confirm its in a good pressure range once I'm closer to to the first start up to have some piece of mind, but glad its not a disaster in planning from the start.
