A '77 S1 Esprit. I have no experience with this, or any S1 for that matter, built up the motor from boxes of parts. Had much fun and the engine is running happily. But the oil pressure would go to the bottom of the gage painted arc when at operating temps at idle. (Using 20W50) Rigged in a Snapon mechanical test gage which read well in the 20-30 psi range at hot idle. You might have heard the sigh of relief. Wanting some pressure numbers, installed a VDO gage which gave the same readings as the Snapon gage. OK finally to my question!!! Does anyone have experiece with a source for a relacement pressure transducer appropriate for the Lotus factory gage installed? Many thanks Murray Randall
