    Default Prime oil lines ect

    Today I primed my oil feed line fine . I also removed the oil return and tryed prime the turbo but couldnt realy get much oil through the turbo . Anyone tell me the best way to get it through or shud I just refit the oil feed and let it pump through from the oil pump on tick over once the motor is running

    You should be able to build oil pressure by cranking (e.g. ignition lead off, fuel pump fuse out).

    iirc there is/should be a fairly big restrictor in the turbo feed, so as to not blow many bar oil through the seals.
    This maybe why you arent getting much through and causing concern.

    Good advice for life in general not just priming oil lines.

    Right sorted . Got oil everywere it needs to be now . . So now my problem is when I wire my electronic pressure guage up without the sender conected it goes straight to full 10bar . So I have conected the sender thinking maby that needs to be wired in aswell however still goes to full .
    I have the + & - conected to the back of guage and the G wire on the sender going to S on the guage and WK going to ground is this correct ? . I must stress this is nothing to do with my oil pressure as I was getting these readings from it before there was even oil in the motor and seems to be a wiring fault.
