oil pressure GL1100

Post by dumbdan » Thu Jul 30, 2015 12:00 am



Is there any other place to install an oil pressure gauge other than removing the pressure switch on a GL1100 1982 engine?

Thanks
Dan

Yes. About 4 inches behind the pressure switch (and directly in line with it), and facing the back of the engine, there's a plug screwed in-it's about 3/4 inch in diameter, and takes a Allen wrench to remove it. That goes directly into the same oil passage as the oil light switch. I had mine out during engine rebuild-it's a cleanout port. You can adapt that pipe size to any size you want. With a quality Allen wrench of the correct size and a small pipe for leverage, it's not to difficult to remove. When reinstaling, carefully clean all factory sealant (hardened) from threads, because, this area of oil passage is down stream from the oil filter. Use pipe thread sealer on male threads, but, don't put sealer on the vary end of the pipe, because it may contaminant oil passage.
My exercise bike is a goldwing.
