OUR ONLINE CHECKOUT is CLOSED and we are NOT accepting any NEW orders at this time.

We are still fulfilling and shipping previously submitted and/or delayed order requests (as product availability allows) UNTIL NOVEMBER 15th 2022.

But after November 15th, all still pending backordered unshipped items will be automatically CANCELLED **(except for any special ordered drop-shipped or made/machined-to-order items).

Our ability to respond to emails is greatly hampered by being under-staffed during this downsize transition time. But we continue to endeavor to answer email inquiries as best we can. And we will continue responding to emails through until early March 2023 because we are wholly committed to resolving any other issues that may arise from previous sales. It is still UNCERTAIN, but we may re-open a substantially downsized version of our store again in the Spring of 2023.

We sincerely appreciate your patience, understanding during this period of restructuring and/or closing. And a huge thank you to all of you whose support and loyalty we have been the beneficiary of over the 23 years that we have worked diligently to support the information and parts needs of the aircooled VW community!

VDO 80psi Oil Pressure Gauge, Royale, White Face with Chrome Bezel, 2 1/16"

VDO 80psi Oil Pressure Gauge, Royale, White Face with Chrome Bezel, 2 1/16"


 
VDO 80psi Oil Pressure Gauge, Royale, White Face with Chrome Bezel, 2 1/16" is used to monitor the ultra-critical oil pressure on VW beetles, ghias, and busses. We recommend 10psi/1k RPM as the benchmark, without exceeding 45psi hot pressure (which causes overheating).

Due to the design of the VW Bug and Type 4 engine, oil pressures in excess of 45psi cause the oil to BYPASS THE STOCK OIL COOLER. VW Assumed that "Thick oil is cold oil", and set it up this way on purpose. So when you put in a monster oil pump, and also use something ridiculous like 20-50 oil, and have 50-60psi oil pressure at cruise, while that SEEMS like a good idea, it's completely unnecessary, and will cause your oil cooler to be "turned off". Oil Temperatures will actually GO DOWN if you get the cruise oil pressure to 35-45psi.
