    12 Rxtx oil pressure issues

    My 12 RXTX is going into Limp mode with the oil light on and the p0524 check engine light. I installed a oil pressure gauge on the back of the cylinder head and im seeing about 55psi at idle and when i rev it up it will go up to about 65-70 psi. I did have a flywheel bolt failure about 30 hours ago which destroyed my magneto and stator, I pulled the motor and cleaned the screens and all the debri out and haven't had any issues until now, before I pull the motor again Id like to get some opinions

    If you are in spec with a gauge,sounds like a oil pressure sensor failure. Start by replacing the sensor.

    Agree, oil sensor is cheapest and easiest to do first. Is the oil reading when the engine is hot and fully warmed up? If so, those readings should not put you in limp mode I don't think. If the oil sensor does not resolve it, I would pull front and rear PTO/oil covers off, and very thoroughly blow out the lowest oil passage in the block ... with what happened to your motor, and these symptoms it is possible you may have some debris blocking the oil passage between the two oil pumps.

    Well it actually ended up being only the oil pressure sensor, happy for once it was something easy and I didn't have to pull the motor for the 5th time
