My gauge does drop down after i shut it off,what worries me is that i dont remember it being that high when i bought the tractor. I since changed the filter and oil (30w) and its still high should i be concerned?
High oil pressure will not damage the engine.frankmarks wrote:If i try this and i still have high pressure is it safe to run.
Not going to push anything into the engine.also if i push on this wooden dowel i will not push anything into the motor will i?
frankmarks wrote:Yes lee i will let you know what I come up with.
Oil pressure gauge is installed and readings taken on the oil filter housing. A plugged or sludged up gallery will not increase or decrease the reading taken at the oil filter housing.ntrenn wrote:When the passages get sludged up, it can give the appearance of high oil pressure too.
The oil pressure regulator valve is simply a pop off valve, limiting the highest pressure in the entire lubrication system to it's set value. Oil pressure in the entire or at any point in the lubrication system may vary slightly from the reading on an accurate gauge. Basically, if an accurate gauge reads 20 psi, then the oil pressure in the entire lubrication system is right at 20 psi.Remember, the regulator is at the FAR end of the block, so when it holds 35 psi at that end, the gauge end of the block could be 20-30 psi higher, but the flow can be next to nothing.
