Hi Peeps,
I need to do a oil presure test (tappets are noisey :paranoid:) so......before I go crawling under it (916 PH1)

Where's the easiest point to get to (to connect a test gauge to)?

Thank you kind sir.....(insert smilie for 'goes off, to have a look')

Wow! couldn't see much from the top :ranting:, so jacked it up and went underneath, & that looks nigh on impossible :headache:, so looked again from the top .......makes me think 'there MUST be an easier way'.... :scratchchin:

So it looks like having to take parts off to attach test gauge, then replace parts to test, then repeat to remove test gauge.....:cry:

Oh well.....see how I feel after a cuppa :D

As long as the oil pressure warning light goes off instantly I wouldn't worry. Low oil pressure is pretty unheard of on the twinnie engine. If it has got low oil pressure trying to rectifying it would probably cost a fortune. What mileage has it done?

Well....when I acquired it, I was under the impression that I might have to rebuild it, but I'm going through some test procedures to assess condition, and to confirm issues before embarking on a major rebuild......at the moment it won't pass emissions, but exactly why I'm not sure yet....

If its the same car with the MAF unplugged then that is probably part of the problem. Won't pass emissions without a functioning one. If you have to replace get a genuine Bosch one.
