Just thought I would "calibrate" the oil pressure gauge as I had the dash in pieces while sorting the speedo that broke on the SPR.

Well, the needle didnt start to move until 20psi and the lower end of "Normal" was 35psi and the top end of "normal" was 60psi.

Interestingly the spare gauge I had was completely different with the lower level 25psi and upper was 45psi.

Anyone, know what the oil pressure should be on hot engine at 50mph in 4th???

Sorry , can't answer your question re oil pressure when hot, but am interested to know how you calibrated the pressure gauge .....

Also how did you break the winder, normal use or accident ? I wonder if our SA friend may be keen to remake some of these as well.



ps my speedo cable was remade at speedycables - however you probably have already got that lined up

Calibrated from my air line that has a regulated gauged supply.

Speedo cable repaired by me. How long it will last is a bit of a guess...

You can just see the oil pressure gauge on the right. The speedo is metric, so doing 80kmh and the engine was nice and hot. Have never tested the gauge so don't know how accurate it is! I've always used Penrite 15W-40 mineral oil since I got the car. On the last long trip, 1900km she used about 200ml.
