51 Oil Pressure Gauge Not Reading


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

My oil pressure gauge has stopped reading so i am going check the obvious i.e. pressure to the gauge and from the pump.

If these are ok where else should i be looking for the fault. There's not any info in the manual regards this as far as i can see.

 

Thanks

I found that old mechanical gauges get clogged with very small slugs of dry hard old oil.  If you remove the line from the back of the gauge you can typically insert a paperclip in to the gauge that will clear the clog...

Hi Guys,

 

Thanks for the replies.

 

Kurt - Thanks that's good to know. Do you ship to the UK?

 

John - No  i haven't, it was working when i last used the car in November.

 

Eric - Thanks for the tip. That will be part of my checks this weekend.

 

Thanks again Guys

 

Regards

Hi Guys,

 

Oil pressure is good now. Cleaned lines and drained oil and filled with new.

 

Whilst doing this i reset the tappets and have one that is ticking quite loudly so will re check this and possibly blow out the oil channels.
