My dad has a 1968 Case 530 gas. The max oil pressure that we see on this engine is less than 10 psi, at full throttle, when cold no less. What is the standard operating pressure for this 159?? and what can be done to boost it up a little bit?

I rebuilt my 159 like a swiss jeweller two winters ago. If it wasn;t in spec it was replaced or machined into spec. Assuming the gauge is right, I get about 20psi, and it works great. I was getting zero before rebuild. The gauge was new from TSC.

It's a 1964 Case 530CK

My Case 530 (159 gas) runs at about 45 psi. However, my Case 800's oil pressure was running at about 15 psi, so I added 1.5 qts of LUCUS Heavy Duty Oil Stabilizer. This additive doubled the oil pressure to about 30 psiís until I could locate a new oil pump.

CORRECTION --- My Case 530 runs @ just under 30 psi. (I need typing lessons)

Is your 530 a later model??? (live PTO, dual range)? I know the earlier gas engines had lower pressure, my 211B, 511B, etc are lucky to see 20 psi... When did Case boost up the pressure??

My 530 is a 1964, caseo-matic, 3 point, live PTO and drift-o-matic w/159 cu-in engine.

Today's Featured Article - Welding Basics - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the most useful skills that an owner of older equipment can have is the knowledge and ability to weld. It seems like the older equipment can do a job, albeit slowly compared to newer stuff, but it tends to break more often. Many of the breakdowns are related to the implements that are being used: the disc, wagon or bushog are among them. Knowing how to fix stress cracks, reinforce weak joints by welding on steel support plates, or cutting and shaping parts and adapters out of raw stee ... [Read Article]
