I started having an rpm drop when I go vertical.  I don't see an oil
pressure drop, at least not much.  My mechanic thinks it might be the
front bearing :-( I'll have the prop governor checked out first (in my
previous oil pressure problems it was always the prop governor).  But
if it is not I may have to look at the front bearing.
