Question about 2000 Harley Davidson FLHT Electra Glide Standard
It has hydraulic lifters and they aren't making noise so is the pressure switch bad or is it in the oil pump? The pump was just rebuilt with the motor. The light didn't come on before the rebuild.
The only way to check the oil pressure switch is to remove it and replace it, or test with a analog guage, if the pressure at idle is 5psi or higher at idle just replace the switch, the switch is not real percise and harleys have a dry sump oil system, and the pump is a g-rotor style dry sump pump at idle the engine might have 5-15lbs of pressure when warm and higher with engine revs you didnt say what weight oil you are running it could be to light of a viscosity 10-50, use a heaver weight oil 20-50 or like i use in my bike (2002 FLHTCU w/sidecar) straight 60wt hopes this helps
