'83 Manta B - Oil Pressure Switch


Recommended Posts

My oil pressure switch appears to be leaking. A closer inspection has confirmed it's leaking from the plastic base one of the terminals sits on - the base plastic is cracked.

So it's knackered :angry:

Any idea where I can get one?

I repaired one in a similar condition, with araldite, and it lasted the life of the car, got to give it a good clean first with petrol or something like. those oil pressure switches are not very easy to obtain.

Unfortunately the Arldite didn't work on mine........but........

picked up a brand new one off ebay for a VW. It's got a 1/8NPT thread but in my box of goodies I had an adaptor to fit it onto the M14 XE thread.

Not sure if the how accurate the gauge will be as it'll possible work in a different pressure range.

Any idea?
