I was considering mounting a pressure gauge like that, if the instrument is on the yokes (triple Ts) have you got a flexible pipe round the steering head? Any breaks in that pipe will drop the big end oil pressure to somewhere around nasty.

Go to the top of the page and look for spare parts. Identify the part by illustration and use the drop down box to get the part number. Go to you supplier of choice and search for the part number.

Be aware that there are early and late (B50 type) ones.

I think this might be helpful. Your engine has been modified to run on dope, and you have to change it back to pump petrol, so reverse all the changed.
