If the sender looks small I think you will need an adapter to fit it into a TED housing. Well that was my experience.

Im expecting a sender adaptor will be required or I will make one possibly using the old tap base. I am lucky enough to have a lathe at home.

"If the tightness of bearings or low viscosity of oil causes the pressure in the system to rise above 40 - 60 PSI, unfiltered oil passes back to the sump as pressure relief valve C opens".

Being able to achieve 60 PSI is brilliant, but do not run it that way. I would though, take steps to check the oil pressure accuracy. It is hard to believe that it would stay that high with a hot engine.

Thanks for the heads up on this.

I recently changed the engine oil in my TED20 for the first time (I used straight non-detergent 40 grade oil from RyeOils https://www.ryeoil.co.uk/shop/vintage-engine-oil-40/)) and the gauge (no idea how accurate) has gone up from 40-60 psi at start up to a steady 60psi.

I haven’t run the tractor for any length of time so far (a few other jobs to do on it before I am ready to do some topping), but will keep an eye on the pressure (will be changing the gauge and testing the new one) when it gets properly hot and adjusting pressure gauge if needed.
