6 speed special question

Anyone out there with 6 speed specials clue me in where the oil pressure line connects to the block? I've looked mine over and there is only one port and by the book, it shows to be a grease fitting for the rear main? Any help is appreciated.

Re: 6 speed special question

JDD, sorry no one has replied to your posting. Sometimes it just takes one reply to open the flood gates. So here goes. I am not familiar with your Waukesha Engine and didn't find anything in my motors manual to help answer your question. What I did find was a listing of clubs. I'm sure someone in one of these clubs are making use of the same motor and have the correct answer. You just have to find the right olde timer. Barring that, there is no reason you couldn't drill and tap in to the pressurized side of an oil galley and run a gauge. I take that back. There could be one reason. If there was no pressurized system in the four banger Waukesha engine and was simply a sling system like a briggs L-head. Again I'm not familiar (yet) with this exact motor. Good luck. Let the flood gates swing wide. :m03104:

Looking back at my pre-teardown photos, it looks like the oil pressure line connects to the fitting that is just above the oil dipstick. I attached some pics for reference. hopefully this answers your question...

Thanks for the info. I have spoken to another that stated the same thing, but my original literature said that was to grease the rear main bearing. I have since connected my gauge to it and will be firing it off soon! Nice photo of the engine too!
