oil pressure is below half but is not effecting engine performance, it looks to be more of an electrical fault the solenoid for the fuel shut of it closeing every 10 seconds when the edic moter kreeps forward cousing it to shut of the fuel and make the engine cough

You should also check the oil pressure connection, perhaps it has come off. From memory, its on the same side and a little above the edic motor.
There is a timing device that does the 10 sec thing, timer is behind the glove box. I used this function as a theft deterrent, secret switch to the oil pressure sensor. Thief gets 10 sec running after jump starting it, has to jump start it again and again and, hopefully gives up down the road:-;

Hi Dozza,

Will be a electrical/power supply problem. Check that your battery/batteries are all good and your alternator has 13.8v output and that your regulator has not had a spit. There was a post in recent times where this was discussed.

Had a similar problem with my 60, when the electrical system was under load and the EDIC would move to shut the engine down and the problem became worse with a greater electical system loading ....... ie spot lights .. fridge ... radios .......

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Wayne.

PS
Low oil level will activate the low pressure cut off switch, which may appear to behave in a similar manner to what you have described.

Cheers,
Wayne.

Hi dozza,
I had exactly the same problem with my 60 series, it turned out to be the Fusible link near the battery. The Auto elec said it was not an uncommon problem. I had my doubts but when he replaced it problems were gone.
Hope this helps
