Oil leak: that strange rare feeling…

Post by adebutter »

Fearing the worst; as oil was dripping continuously from the centre block directly under the pushrods…
Can you imagine how nice it is to spend 90 min getting the covers off the blooming exhaust nuts onkynro find it is the oil sender that is peeing out oil.
Oh my days! Feeling good and off to bed.

Anyone confirm that a DG1.9 1985 blue oil sender is indeed a low pressure switch; l think 0,15 to 0.35 bar?

The one between the pushrods is the low pressure switch. If I recall they were black, but now blue.. someone can confirm.

Got the new pressure switch; super quick from Brickwerks.
Does it need a seal or ptfe tape, or nothing?
Thank you.

I am sure there should be a soft copper or aluminium washer, that crushes to seal between the sender and the block.
