Hi folks, my oil pressure on my 62 Etype is around 20-25 pounds at idle. I checked the oil level and checked the oil filter and even when I rev it up to 2000 rpm, all it gets is maybe 35 pounds of pressure.
I did research and found I should check the oil pressure relief valve and make sure the spring isn’t worn. How can I tell if it is worn? Should it be a certain length?
I also saw I should squeeze or clamp shut the rubber hose coming from the oil pressure relief valve and if I squeeze it and the oil pressure increases, then it is a worn spring? Is this correct?
I also saw where it might be the sender unit fastened to the top of the oil filter assembly unit. Is there anyway of determining if this is the root cause, short of replacing it?
Thanks for your help, this is a great forum.
