(quoted from post at 06:59:53 10/01/1Cool My dad and I have just yesterday got a 1941 Allis Chalmers WC running. When my dad checked the oil pressure gauge however, it read no oil pressure. He thought it was just the old gauge, and put in a new gauge. When we started it again, there was no oil pressure. He could feel it with his thumb when he put it over the hole. Could anyone determine why there is no pressure readable on a gauge, or do WC tractors just have a low PSI?
Just read all of the comments that you received on the WC oil pressure. I remember Dad and GrandPa commenting on the new WC bursting oil filters, don't know what the oil pressure was but it must have been pretty high, also knew an old guy that used a pint jar full of rags for a filter and it seemed to work ok for him.

The gauge of a WC is good for 0-30lbs. pressure max. They normally run from 5 lbs. to 15 lbs. oil pressure.If it split filter can something
was wrong with filter or oil system. You could use about anything but doesn't mean its doing what it should.

They are equipped with a "bypass filter", and the oil that passes though the filter gets "returned to sump" with NO restriction on it.

How's that scenario gonna "bust a filter"?

I'm pretty sure that is what the filter looked like, but it still might be a few days before we can get a new one, my dad is working late and can't get one. Once we do, however, we'll see if we can get this problem fixed

Also, the filter we're using was probably sitting on the shelf, since probably the 70's. Would that at all affect it? I mean, it was in the plastic wrap still, but...

Like I asked before, would that affect oil pressure because of an old filter? We need a new filter anyway, but still.

Either that or our gauge is busted.

Also, sorry if it seems like I'm asking a bunch of questions... I'm just a curious teen. I've always been that way.

If it was sealed in a plastic wrapper, it is likely ok. If it is the right type media in it, it is likely ok. It the tube inside is there, tight, and not bent enough to leak or damage the filter media, it is likely ok. Your gauge may be bad. As previously posted by D beatty get a 0-30 lb. gauge, 100 psi range is too much. You can put a short hose in place of the gauge, so you can aim it into a bucket, and start it to see if oil comes out the hose. Don't run it long when checking this way.

An old oil filter could break down over time and if it has not work little it needs to. I do not know where you are but my local O'Reilly's where I get a lot of my parts at is open till 9PM 5 days a week and open till 7pm Saturday and Sunday

Just saying what was handed down to me 60 or so years ago, maybe the filters weren't up to the task.
