comment Can an engine stop from a bad battery?
Good point. Although all Corollas have petrol fueled engines, afaik, I'll update the post with information on the Corolla's engine.

comment What are the resistance values for a 1970s GM fuel level sender?
I think that the OP is trying to find the values for full and empty perhaps.

comment High oil pressure after oil and filter change
Turns out it was the wiring to the sender. I bought an engine oil pressure testing device ($10 at Harbor Freight), swapped it in, and fired the Westerbeke up. It showed perfect pressure. Examining the sender that was on there, I found that the lead was down to two strands of wire! I suppose thirty eight years of vibration eventually wore it down, and I must have bumped it when I was changing the filter. Snipped the end off the wire, attached a new ring connector, reinstalled it and it works again. Thanks all!

comment High oil pressure after oil and filter change
NoCarrier, do you think it would be worthwhile to try a lower weight oil? It has been pretty cold, down into the 30's. Maybe some 5W30?

The gauge sits right at the maximum value. I'll see if I can find a replacement gauge and swap it out. I wish I had a flow gauge.
