Re: Low oil pressure????
I forgot to tell you to wrap that fitting with some Teflon tape . They do on some engines screw in quite far , also look inside the hole at the depth to the galley and see if it's indeed very shallow . Shouldn't be a problem , but you never know . BTW, general opinions on oil pressure is 10psi/1000revs . I really don't like using 5w30 oil in a Zuk due to pressure losses with hot oil . Engine temp also plays a large part , if you run yours at 195* or so , the pressure will be lower since the oil also runs much hotter . At 180*, you would see a fair difference . My rule is to check the temp of the head/valve cover and see how hot the oil is getting or use a probe inside the head . Also, don't be too alarmed by readings from those cheap guages , get a real Auto Meter and no more guessing ....
