Good place to get oil pressure reading on 470

Post by TDezso »

Where is the best place to hook up for my oil pressure on an 0470? My old gpu was just behind the oil filter. This engine has a port there also, but not sure if it's a good spot.

Mine's hooked up to a fitting between & below cylinders 2 & 4.

Been 10 years since I mounted my 470, but I do remember the oil line being hooked up to a 0 pressure place on the other side of the engine at first...that scared hell out me first time I fired it up.

What does it say you run for pressure? I know where you're talking about. Not sure if it would read correctly there.

45 lbs. @ cold idle.

Not a fresh motor time wise, but still runs strong. It was a runout when I put the boat together and I've never touched it except for oil & plugs.

Like Rick's, mine is on the side of the case just below the base of #2 & #4 cylinders (IO-0470-L). A little tough to see and get to.
