my to-20 has a gauge on the dash, it stays about 1/2 the way up until i put a load on it, then it drops to zero. quit plowing or w/e and it goes back up. it makes no noise. you can run it all you want like this and no knocking or noise of any sort/ wonder why? thanks

Under load {RPM Increase} worn main bearings and or poor oil return from the head could cause this.

just remember:

the fastest way to ruin a good engine is lack of oil pressure.

the second fastest way to ruin a good engine is letting it get too hot.

do not run the engine until you get a second oil pressure guage installed to be sure you do or do not have oil pressure, if not, replace oil pump, etc:
whatever you have to do to get oil pressure before you ruin the engine.

let us know what the problem was!

You can take the oil line off and start it, however if the oil line is not plugged and everything is working correctly oil should come gushing out.

The oil pump is on the bottom of the block in the oil pan area.

You sound as you are correct remove oil line nut. Then the two nuts on the back of the gauge, pull off the U shaped holder under the nuts you just removed then push the oil gauge backward out of the dash. You can remove the oil line from the gauge in the dash and attach it to the new gauge and hold it to see if it will work w/o actually installing the new gauge. It is up to you.
