Oil Pressure Gauge

Postby CDD » Thu Dec 15, 2016 8:48 am

What is the best way to remove the oil pressure gauge?
I am not getting a reading, but it runs fine.
Is there a way to test it once it is off? Air compressor etc

It should just unscrew. May have to use a rag around it and a pair of pliers. You can put an air nozzle to the back of it and see if it moves, may have trash in it.

Is it just the gauge that unscrews or the pipe(threaded pipe) that comes out. Lots of paint just don't want to break it. Bull in a glass shop, i have been told.

The threaded pipe is attached to the gauge, it all comes out.

A "baby" filter/strap wrench works great! The strap on the one I have (graciously given to me by Barnyard!) is only about 1/2" wide, and won't scratch the housing.

Remove the paint at the joint first. Then apply some penetrant and let it soak in for a few days.

I put a brand new one in Walt a few years ago and when I installed the new clutch I was trying to hit something with the hammer and missed and busted the glass on it, it's still busted now but works. I wasn't to happy but can't do anything about it but replace it again.

I did replace the face on the air gauge on the Schramm pneumatractor we have with a piece of lexan, it wasn't easy but you can't find that gauge anywhere, lol. The stainless ring that holds it on is still split at the bottom, shhhh don't tell anybody!

Was able to get it off but couldn't get the air compressor to fire up.

I've not figured out how to clean trash out of them. I would buy a new one if it isn't working.

I am pretty sure it does not work. If I take it off and start the engine should oil come out of where the gauge was?

Thanks. if it doesn't then an oil pump check is in order. Any suggestions on what to look for when doing that? Cub and 140

Look at the sump screen for trash. Look to see if it is warped and not pumping well. I've never looked close at one myself but I've read those are common issues.
