Sadly I'm on holiday from this weekend and I will be resuming my digger disparity on return from in a couple of weeks, at which point I might take up your offer if you are around at any point. Meanwhile I too wonder whether the oil
spec might be wrong.

I'd get that bloody synthetic stuff out of it! It's to thin imo, find the correct spec, but a decent quality 15w/40 mineral oil will be just as well.

I was told when I bought the thing that the engine type is 3TNE68NBV but this brings up nada when I Google it.

Have a look on the Morris Lubricants website, they have an oil finder, might be worth a look.

Don't worry about the grade too much. Like Shovelhands says, a decent 15/40 mineral will be fine. Any oil in there should keep the oil pressure sensor happy.

Odds are the sensor has been failing and has now failed, or there is a failure in the sensor wire insulation.

man after my own heart ..... won't go far wrong with Shell's Rimula-X, as a good general detergent oil. Exceeds most spec.s known to man

Good enough for everything I've run for decades .... and them crane engines did not come cheap
