skleutz, sorry to hear about your oil pump failure.

Regarding the bouncing oil pressure gauge, mine will bounce a bit when it's between 2 and 3 Bar, but I think that's due to an old oil pressure sender, or perhaps it's because the gauge is old... who knows. Otherwise, pressure is good at idle (1.5 Bar), and rises quickly to 3 Bar at or about 1,000 RPMs. If I hold the engine at 850 RPMs or so, it will bounce between 2 and 2.5 Bar.

At this point, I'm not really worried about it, since the pressure is always good. I will have to give some serious consideration to a mechanical gauge though, since the engine has 270,000 miles on it.
