Hose From Accumulator Connected To Engine Oil Galley
Solenoid Valve With Oil Pressure Gauge
The Accumulator Is Mounted To The Right Front Frame Horn
Digital Solenoid Valve Controller
The AutoEngineLube kit is working perfectly. It is a wonderful thing not to hear any engine noise on start up after setting for days or weeks. I had to install it in a really tight engine bay so I have the solenoid, gauge and accumulator all separated and squeezed in. The solenoid and gauge are on the right fender well just above the right front upper control arm and the accumulator is mounted to the right front frame horn in front of the tire behind front bumper. As you can tell there is a lot going on at the block feed point but it still feeds the system quickly and brings up oil pressure in just a few seconds after turning on the ignition to energize the solenoid. The Big Block Buick engines run fairly low oil pressure, especially at idle and with the filter mounted side ways they have drain back over time so my system is set to time out after one minute so that it captures the higher pressure while the engine and oil is cold and save it for the next startup.
GREAT PRODUCT - The kit was so complete that even in my weird installation I did not have to buy any extra fittings or lines.
