  7. Here's my oil pressure. Hoping one it's been on RR it will start much better.

  8. think I have found you starting problem ,you got no petrol...:D

    btw I would want mine to start straight away ,no chokes?...:hattip:
     
  9. Me too... But it doesn't. Well it does, but the petrol in the carbs evapourates if I leave it for a few days, then it takes a couple of seconds, otherwise first turn no matter how slowly. All my engines have started like this, never had to crank them over.
     
  10. But I checked oil pressure cold yesterday. About 40 ticking over, about 80 running.
    Warm is 42 running and about 15-20 ticking over.

    Not sure what Ray's vid is supposed to show?
     
  11. If it shows anything it's that the guage is slow to react when the engine starts. I suspect there may be air in the pressure measuring gubbins.
    I would remove the pressure switch, crank until oil comes out, then refit quickly. I had to do this with mine when it was first installed and any time I've had the sender off for whatever reason.
