1985 944 Oil pressure relief valve

Engine

Vehicle Information: Model(924/944): 944; Year: 1985; Engine (type, size, modifications): 2.5; Total Mileage: 85000;

I have just recently changed my oil and since then when the car starts, there is a delay (approx. 20-30 seconds) in the oil coming up to pressure. I have read through the other questions related to oil pressure and I believe it is the oil pressure relief valve. According to a chart I found, my car should have the three piece valve and I wonder if it is possible to remove it from the car and clean it to put it back in service? My guess is that I have gotten some contamination in the system during the filter change that may be causing the relief valve to stick.
