    Yes the oil filter is full of that. Is the problem in impeller or in the gears?

    I would guess H.S, time to open up. Would figure worse case both impeller & high speed causing Aluminum to show up.

    gears are steel. all the bearings are aluminum. gears could be damaged but wont turn oil grey. high speed bearings and thrust is likely.

    I Think this tear down process would be a tough task for me since I haven't engaged in similar thing before. Any advice or help is highly appreciated.

    If oil is grey, do not run that chiller. Need to open it up and find out what is going on. I would not try to adjust oil pressure unless you are absolutely sure everything else is in good condition. Your net pressure is around 100psi which is normal, but you lose it on startup. Sounds like an issue with your high speed thrust.
