the rubber seal is seated.
Tighten the filter by turning it clockwise seven
numbers from the marked point. For example, if a
mark is made under the number 2 when the rub

to oil leakage
After installation. fill the engine with oil up to the spec-

1. Connect a tachometer'
Remove the engine oil pressure switch, and install an
oal pressure gauge.
ENGINE OtL PRESSURE
Start the engine. Shut it off immediately if the gauge
registers no oil pr€ssure. Repair the problem before
Allow the engine to reach operating temperature (tan
comes on at least tlivice). The pressure should be;
Engine Oil Temperature: 176"F (80"C1
Engine Oil Pressulo:
69 kPa (0.7 kgf/Gm'. 10 Psi)
At 3.000 rpm: 3/Ut kPa (3.5 kgt/cm', 50 psi)
. lf the oil Dressure is within specifications, replace
the oil pressure switch and recheck.
. lf the oil pressure is NOT within specifications,
inspect the oil pump (see page 8-10).
