    oil pressure gauge

    has anyone thought of doing this? im thinking some kind of inline oil pressure gauge could prevent any failure due to a messed up oil pump. is there such a thing? maybe a relay that would automatically turn off the machine if oil pressure drops below a certain psi?

    let me know your thoughts guys

    I did a little check in the service manual for my boat. Unless I misread it, it says that the oil injection system on all 96 models should be 3psi. I don't know if they make a guage to read such a low pressure. Maybe check into a small pressure switch instead? That way if the injector takes a dive for the worst, a little light will turn on from lack of pressure against the switch. That's what they use on ATVs but keep in mind they too run much higher oil pressures than 3psi.
