could someone remind me of the pressure at which the oil pressure relief starts to open on a 1300 fulvia.i have 75psi in my mind but my cars mecanical guage is reading higher as is the standard guage even at 3000 rpm.i will inspect the valve before further use.i have 20/50 oil so i should get something thinner for gentle use in cool weather.i did read that oil post recently regarding start up temps and suitable oils with interest although i have used 20/50 in the past with no probs touch wood.advice welcome on that relief valve.at least it is accessable.best regards richard

Richard

70 psi is I think about right but if oil is cold then you will not release the excess through the relief valve.

Have you measured when "hot"??

Oil rad?? This should also be thermostatically controlled. If water Rad are you saying you are not getting the oil hot. I would find that odd. My oil pressure goes to normal before full operating temperature as per my oil temp gauge. Generally with oil hot even a tight/new engine will still drop presure on a fulvia below 2000rpm.

i have tried some cardboard infront of the uprated water radiator which has got the water to 160F and the oil pressure is between 20-70 psi.[no oil cooler fitted]and the engine seems to be running more happily now.thanks richard

This is what the Italians used during winter:

The one for my 2c came from Martin Willums in the Netherlands, he also had them for series 2 Berlina, in Holland they are known as "Bras". Roll Eyes
