Having a similar problem and was looking at the Harbor Freight kit. Looks like the current kit has the exact thread size needed for the Deutz port.

"M10 x 1 male x 1/8 in-27 NPT female straight"

My PT1850 oil pressure gauge started fluctuating while mowing recently. I suspect wiring, but the pressure test kit from HF is so affordable, I'm going to get one for the collection. I will report back.

With the HF test kit I was able to quickly verify oil pressure was correct. It turns out the bracket which holds the multifunction dash gauge was loose. Tightened that up and gauge indicated constant regular oil pressure instead of erratically fluctuating. I guess it wasn't grounding properly. I should note the gauge light hadn't been working either and it came back on once the bracket was tightened up.

I would run a dedicated ground wire from the panel to the frame, with paint free connections on both ends.

@BWSwamper Congratulations!

Having had to chase down intermittent gremlins in the past, I have a dislike of bad grounds.

When I bought my PT, I ran ground wires from the negative engine ground to the rear frame, and to the front frame at the front panel, all meeting at the same point. My only regret is that I didn't use high flexibility wire through the tunnel. I also took the time to clean the negative ground point at the engine block and put copper dielectric grease on it to keep it electrically clear and free of corrosion.

I have done the same thing for some older vehicles that I have owned over the years and it did wonders for things like head lights (brighter), dash gauges, and brake lights (reliably working...).

All the best,

Peter
