    I don't have a pressure gauge or light for that matter.

    What would tell me that my oil pump is shot?

    A noisy top end or a check with a mechanical gauge.

    You don't have an idiot light for the oil?

    Nope, bare bones.

    What line would I pull off to check pressure?

    [/FONT] [FONT=Arial,Helvetica] The oil lines are fastened to the fittings on the oil pump and the engine case. The breather line from the tank goes to the breather fitting (A) on the engine case just above the pump. The oil feed line from the tank goes to the feed fitting on the pump (B) and the return line from the pump (C) goes back to the return line on the tank or if you have a remote oil filter it goes to the in fitting on the filter mount.[/FONT]
