Oil Pressure

Hi Guys,

I'm curious to find out what oil pressures
the ea - faimont/Spack gauges represent.

I think the manual says it should be 280kpa min
@2000 rpm

My Fairmont's gauge goes from 0-7. How do I
correlate the readibng??

Cheers

That's the problem with that gauge, like and idiot light, these things are idiot gauges, should be calibrated in kpa instead of high -low. Don't know how you would calibrate it. Good if it was though!
