well i ordered a steward warner hobbs 5000 series switch adjustable psi... i think this will work as all i need is enough air pressure to push oil through meter and into engine well i think my old pressure protection valve was set at 60-65 psig so it could not have got any more pressure than that-if i remimber right that is we'll see if any of you come up with psi that sw, is set at....thanks mike

Hi Mike,

I’m beginning to think you guys sit around the campfire with Randy and say let’s see if we can get Wyatt fired up about Pressure Protection Valves again.

The Pressure Protection Valve thing keeps popping up on the WOG and sometimes Bill Pape or I respond… sometimes we don't...

Contrary to what appears to be the popular opinion on the WOG, a 65 psi PPV does not limit the pressure on the output side of the PPV to 65 psi – if you have 120 psi on the input side of a 65 psi PPV you should have 120 psi on the output side of the PPV.

The name “Pressure Protection Valve” seems to be what confuses people. I think a better name for a “Pressure Protection Valve” would have been “Air Brake Protection Valve”.

The PPV in the line to your Bulk Oil tank is there to protect the Air Brake System – not the Bulk Oil system. Its job is to automatically close at 65 psi to maintain safe air brake pressure in the event of a loss of air due to a failure in the Bulk oil system.

Anyway to answer your question about the pressure switch, according to my chassis parts manual, it’s a Normally Open Williams Air WM777A “Stop Light Switch” (It closes at 2 to 6 psi on pressure rise).

John!
Would we do that?
I must say that in the trucking industry "most everyone thinks the PPV is a regulator".
My parts guy told me thats what it does,and i never had need to study it!
Its a good thing we have smart guys here to keep the old wives tales (or is it tails?) corrected!
