I have a 1952 8N side mount distributor.

I noticed that my oil pressure gauge isn't working. I know that it had been at one time. Could it be that the filter has gotten so clogged that pressure isn't reading at the guage? Or is it possibly time for a new guage?

Try disconnecting the oil line to the gauge. It is on the right side and rear of the block. One comes from the oil filter and into the block. the other small line goes to the gauge. Disconnect it and as you loosen with engine running there should be oil squirting out. If so, you got pressure. If not go to the front side of filter and loosen the connection. If it squirts then the problem is in the filter. If no oil there would just about have to be pump. Good Luck.

Change your oil/filter.If that doesnt fix it(probably wont),try a different gauge.If that doesnt work,you have deeper problems

Thanks. Once I get 'er running today. I will change the filter and then the guage if needed. The guage on the tractor appears to be original so I figured it could be bad.

Thanks again

Thanks. I couldn't tell. It all connects to the canister and I thought it was after the filter?

Mike.......oil pressure gauge is connected to same "T"-block at rear of flathead engine that the oil filter is connected to. So yer filter could be completely clogged and you will still read oil pressure. Its the LAW. Hydro-dynamics law.

As a rule, the oil pressure gauge is semi-bulletproof. Howsomevers, as with all things mechanical, it could come apart inside. New oil pressure gauge, $15 (cheap) ........Dell
