Applying pressure

I started back to work this week for The Man…a different Man, and this one pays better!

It’s been awhile since the engine has been turned over and since the first start is approaching, it’s time to pre-oil the engine. Superior’s manual says that you can do that by either applying oil at 35 PSI into one of the lubrication galley ports on the front of the engine, or by cranking it with the starter until the oil pressure sensor shows 20 PSI. I chose to do the latter as it’s less mess and is also a good test of the G3x. I loosened slightly the oil pressure line AN fitting at the sensor end so air could escape. Made a little mess when the pressure came up, but was easily cleaned.

A video is worth a thousand words and there’s not much else to say anyway.

Big thanks for Mike Henning and Bob DiMeo for their help!
