Can anyone give tips on replacing the 8 pin rev counter plug on 81-84 model (guess the same on all R65/45's)?
I've started trying to get to the bottom of a non existent oil pressure light when turning the ignition on - it's finally got the better of me now! I've just changed the oil and filter, cranked with empty float bowls 'til the oil light supposed to go off, after viewing the idea (think I saw that suggested here by one of our gurus) but it's already not lit 'cause the warning light hasn't worked consistently for a couple of years and it's actually kinda bugging me now
A PO looks like they've done a job on the 8 pin plug but the meter itself is ok as far as the warning light bulbs go when I feed it power and ground them from the plug pole terminals. I checked continuity of the oil pressure wire and it's inconsistent from the 8 pin plug to the the two pin connector underneath the left battery cover, from there to the pressure switch it's ok.
Also any tips on replacing other terminal blocks e.g. two pin flat terminal blocks like the oil/neutral switch connector underneath the left battery cover.. I know most connector block pins are retained by one directional needles, are these serviceable or is it a case of chopping off and crimping new pins and a block on?
Any info on whether to chop and replace, or possible to fix existing terminal blocks would be greatly appreciated!
