Oil Pressure Safety Switch

Recommended Posts

DarthJim

I have a 2001 Sunsetter (350 Indmar?) and the oil pressure safety switch is bad and needs to be replaced. My nearest Malibu dealer is about 1 1/2 hours away and I don't really feel like making that drive for, what should be, such a readily available part. Does anyone know what I should be asking for (specifically) at an auto parts store? They all seem to fall back on the "well, we don't know what the marine specification for that part is." Napa? Canadian Tire? Parts Source?

Thanks,

~Jim

I have seen them get gummed up. I have pulled them flushed them with gas dyed and reinstalled. both of them still working if that is your problem.

Napa should have a marine parts cross reference. Or you could use skidim - I believe this is the right one or one of the other online sites.

Edit: I can check/verify tonight during clean-up from this weekend's outing.

You could ask your local dealer to ship it to you. We ship out parts all the time.

Automotive type switches work fine, but they do not have the watertight type electrical connection that your original one has. You need a switch that closes at 4-6 PSI dropping.
