Route of oil pressure cable

Post by Ciaoflyer »

I’m having trouble getting the correct route for the oil pressure switch cable without it touching the exhaust/engine and getting burned. It has the two switches, one at pushrod tubes and one at rear below water pump. Can anyone one advise the correct route for this cable? Cheers again 😀

90 degree spade on the switch, then vertically upwards to the top of the crankcase and then past the dizzy.

At least that's what I remember from changing the switch and doing the earth bypass on the dizzy to temporarily silence the DOPS system.
