Hi All!

Nice to meet some of you at NEC this year! Sorry I didn't hang around for long!

Thought I would post a quick update.
While I slowly gather all the necessary parts to rebuild the engine I decided I would go ahead & spray the engine bay.

Started by painstakingly removing all the original paint which has taken a number of weeks as I only work on the beta at the weekend.

Once all the paint was stripped cleaned down all the panels with panel wipe, then sprayed 2k Epoxy primer followed a few days later with 2k base coat and 2k clear.
This was my first time spraying anything, so sorry if it's a bit crude.

Think I am fairly happy with the results though Smiley

The oil pressure switch may be faulty, they can fail. Might be worth replacing it for a couple of dollars to eliminate it from the equation.

Actually from Aust, the car definitely doesn't have all the US specific mods.
Anyway, thanks all for the comments & suggestions, will check the filter & pump, and if they look normal, try a separate switch for the pump.

Great to see everyone yesterday on the stand and meet a few people I only knew by names. Cars looked excellent.

Hope everyone's stamina lasts!

If anyone mentions the R word again, just show them Andy C's reply as our PR officer!!!!!

From what you have written, it sounds like the engine used to get up to oil pressure much quicker before. I would check the oil pump, filter/relief valve. You could always wire in a switch to allow the pump to run initially and turn this off after starting, but obviously you run the risk of forgetting and hence not having the comfort of the pump stopping in the event of an accident etc.
