    Skipper Oil Pressure

    Completely normal, Bob. There is some info about this on the BAC website. Do a BAC search (top right corner) for "oil pressure adjustment" (without the quotes), and read the post that is highlighted.

    Musketeer Mailers,

    I've noticed something about the oil pressure in my new Skipper.

    When the engine is first started and it's cold, the oil pressure will
    usually be in the middle of the green range on the gauge.

    However, after flying for awhile and the engine is idling on the
    ground (~1000rpms), it will indicate in the middle of the yellow
    range for the oil pressure.

    The oil pressure is in the green range all the time it's in the air.

    The oil pressure range is 25-60 psi for the yellow range, and 60-
    100psi for the green range.

    It was over 70 degrees out when I was getting these readings.

    Is the oil pressure suppose to be in the yellow when the engine is
    warm and idling on a fairly warm day?

    Thanks,

    Bob Gresli
    Skipper 6636E

    Skipper Oil Pressure

    I'd diagnose & confirm that temp readings are accurate. Could be a
    worn guage, sender wiring etc. If it checks out, readings sound a bit
    low, tho an engine with many hours can end up with lower readings,
    than say a fresh pump.

    I think that pump may be worn, but still good. I'm not concerned
    about the readings, but don't know what the bottom line is, in terms
    of oil pressure half way in the yellow (& reading is accurate) at
    idle, as far as "must deal with it". Anybody know? ~ 40 psi sounds
    like plenty to me.

    My engine (160 Lyc) has 200 hrs & at start goes ~ 3/4s in the green &
    at idle sometimes, just nudges the yellow. Also healthy green levels
    at higher RPMs.
