Re: Oil pressure instability

EAA Sport Aviation magazine finally published a short article I sent in on making A Simple Strobe which uses very little ship’s power.
Cost was $12 for both lights. I had included web addresses for the components but they shortened the words and ommitted them.
Current draw is very low. Strobes are on the Zenith.

On the power output deal I would replace all the lights with LED.  Makes a big difference.  Good upgrade

Thanks Mark,
I’ve not been worried about it either. I just thought maybe it would be a simple fix. If it wasn’t for added weight I might use the grease gun hose connected to an isolator then a mechanical gauge.

I have had the same problem for 24 years.....I think it's just that the stator doesn't have enough output power. Instead of reading the absolute number I just use relative readings to know its normal.

Since I installed the new Stratus Transponder this year, it draws enough power that it will sometimes shutdown at low engine power, like landing configurations. If the Stratus doesn't have enough voltage it shuts down.

Thanks

On my XP with 912S the oil pressure gauge shows less pressure when I turn on the running lights and goes lower yet when I turn on the strobe lights. I’m sure it is a electrical load problem, but where do you suppose it originates?  Ground? Poor connection? Corroded fuse? Other?
