low oil pressure


Recommended Posts

First visually check the lines for the oil tank to the pump to make sure you don't have a kinked line. Especially the line the goes from the cooler to the oil pump.

Based solely on experience with other aircraft engines I would say to check the oil pressure relief valve for debris. It is possible that a little piece of something found its way to between the ball or mushroom and the seat.

A well placed spring of the correct diameter will keep that from happening. 

Is this a spring that goes inside the oil line from the cooler to the oil pump or something like a unicoil that goes on the outside of that line (outside the orange wrapping)?  Can someone provide an ID and source for the line if it goes inside, or OD and source for the outside?
