Does anybody know the exact dimensions of the Oil pressure valve? I lost mine and was wondering if anybody could give me the dimensions so I could have a tool maker make a new one for me. Thanks in advance!
Here is a picture of the Oil pressure relief valve provided by HDWrench. Great picture, no dimensions though. Most people wouldn't need them, but then most people wouldn't lose their's either. Thanks for the reply.
I did mention it to HDWrench but gave no indication to him about needing the dimensions at the time. At the time I had one on order but the order was being held up at my local HD shop due to conditions with their purchasing department. I called the local shop again today and he assured me that the part will be here this week. I should have been more careful with the cam plate once I took the spring out. My first HD wrench job and a lesson learned. It shouldn't cost that much for that little part ... but then again who knows. Thanks for the reply.
I guess you could make such a part but I wouldn't attempt it. That part is centerless ground to a very high finish. You could probably order one and get it within a week for less than $10.00. If the fit and finish is incorrect, it could stick in the bore.
