  • Oil Pressure Adjustment

    There has been talk here in Ayrshire lately about oil pressure adjustment. Yesterday I read about, and examined the oil pressure adjustment feature on our cars. There's a write up about it in the engine section of the technical manuals online. Here's a link:

    The short of it is there's a large brass screw plug on the left side front of the oil sump at the bottom side of the engine - remove that plug using a M14 bolt head (22mm), with a couple of nuts locked in place on the bolt to facilitate turning it. When you get this off - there's another plug cover in the hole, remove that carefully without dropping it into the sump - behind that plug cover is a large flat head screw - loosening it lowers the tension on a spring/ball bearing valve which allows more oil to pass through the bypass, tightening it restricts oil through the bypass, thereby increasing your oil pressure. If it doesn't increase the pressure then your bearings or pump are worn excessively. Still, it is said Talbots still run well with low oil pressure.
