I do Alan and i bet you do as well. The oil pressure switch is mounted near the oil filter on the block, correct?

Where does all the oil drain down to when the engine is off?

I'm hoping you've jumped a step or three ahead of me now but if not, i'll explain after i've walked Sasha and fed us both later.

Meanwhile it's not a problem to change it but let it cool down first, exhaust manifold burns are nasty and the cast iron holds the heat for a long time!

I thought that would probably be the case, but I thought I'd check.

Stay safe,
