Oil pressure regulator pics - scored, crushed cage?
I removed the pictured oil pressure regulator due to OIL alarms on my RXP last season. The 'piston' pictured has visible scoring marks from all 4 'ribs' of the cage, the picture only shows the worst one. Since there is visible scoring from all 4 ribs, I am guessing this was over tightened and slightly crushed the cage. There is only one small visible score mark on the bottom of the cage, but you can catch a fingernail in the scoring on the piston.
Crushed cage? Trapped debris? I will try to mic this cage and my brand new one when I get to the condo to see if there is a measurable difference too.
Anybody else have pictures of used OPR parts they care to post? Curious to see some that did not set alarms, as well as ones that were definitely crushed cage/setting off alarms.

Normal wear n tear. It's a floating piston so it's going to rub the cage a bit. I always replace them on any rebuild regardless of hours of use. 9 times out of 10 A crushed cage wouldn't let the piston move.
I'm assuming you replaced the oil pressure sensor with a known working one to confirm?
