Default Re: Dynon DS-10 no oil pressure

I installed the test kit gauge.
I did an engine purge procedure by the book.
I got pressure on the gauge in a few turns of the prop.
I completed the purge, checked the valve tappet clearance and buttoned up the engine.
Tomorrow will do a test start with the direct pressure gauge in place. Will do run up and leak check. The Mechanic will sign off the engine and a/c inspection if all goes well. I'll let you know

Real good news Jay. Oil presure always a good thing.

Ok, All is going well, I have about 7 hours on the engine and the numbers and temps are settling down to a very normal range.
There was some learning curve going on with just reading the gauge but I think I have it. Not sure if I'm reading the water temp right, but its around 201 most of the time. I need to open the book before my next flight to make sure I have defined the parameters right as 200 is showing yellow and the 912 is going to be at 180 or higher most of the time. I don't think yellow is right.

I made my first real flight mission today and flew the 30 miles to Sandpoint Idaho to replace my broken phone with a new one at the Verizon wireless store. Wife would not sit that one out so we flew in 90 degree heat and landed in 10+mph 90 degree cross wind on asphalt. It wasn't real pretty but it was safe.

All temps in the green,( except water) VNE at 5460 in the smooth part of the ride. No leaks, just fun.

My CHT (water) temp runs consistently around 200, I think I have yellow set to 215.
