    I don't know that engine, but I can immediately think of a couple of things; the mechanic has left an external oil feed pipe disconnected (unlikely as you have good pressure and haven't reported a leak), or the mechanic has fitted the head gasket incorrectly and it is blocking an oilway.

    as above, presumably a 115 engine - my guess is headgasket upside down.
