Oil line re install
« on: May 25, 2009, 03:35:11 AM »
I am reinstalling my oil line to the gauge cluster and wanted to know if I had to bleed the line of air prior to connecting to the gauge.

Thanks for the help!

Ok thanks.

Where does the air go once the line is filled with oil pressure?

It just stays there - don't worry about it. :-)
