  1. so, I've recently met this lady, a twenty something birkin kit that came to me in an 'assembled' state. As I go through it I've discovered the oil pressure dumps under braking. Under normal running indicating around 5 kpa, at idle drops of to a hair over 3. But when stab the brake hard it'll dump to around 2. It's a 2L zetec in there with a low profile sump( low capacity too), no idea if there is adequate windage in there tho.

  2. if there is not a pressure switch plumbed into the brake lines somewhere, then this is your brake switch. It would switch the ground path rather than the positive. switches are in a 'normally closed' or 'normally open' configuration and some switches will identify the terminals as NO or NC in the case where the switch can be used for different applications. you are not looking for power at the switch but a completed ground path when the plunger extends. figure which lead goes directly to ground then test for continuity through the switch from the opposite lead. operate the switch to
