Re: [GFS] 56 Fury - Oil Light Flashes On



Jim,

I recall you saying your motor was recently rebuilt, but it does overheat. 
Don't know the viscosity of oil you are using, but this time of year I've 
had good luck by running 20w-50 in my old cars.  It will take a heat beating 
and not tend to thin out.  Also, oil's properties diminish after "time" and 
miles due to various factors.  A low idle setting will also set the oil 
light off or flickering if you are running hot with thinning oil.  Sounds 
like your heating problem is the primary cause, but be sure you have fresh 
oil of sufficient viscosity to deal with the heat problem until that(heat 
problem) is fixed.
