Hi Rawknees,
If I understand what you say. Is that where the oil line that comes from the engine and where the restrictor ball is located that the oil pressure switch on top of it and triggers the low oil pressure light on the dash gauge that this would not cope with high oil pressure.
Just to humor me mate can you tell me if you know what actually sends the oil to and through that restrictor ball?
Is it from the crank pressure or is there a pump?
