I replaced the oil filter housing on my K-Series VVC today with one with a mount for an oil temperature gauge. In doing so I disconnected the capillary tube for the mechanical oil pressure gauge. Quite a lot of oil drained back from the tube, which was obviously largely full of oil. After reconnecting, I guess it was largely full of air. All appeared to work fine, oil pressure gauge was responsive and pressures readings were just as before, but I was just wondering if you were supposed to do anything to bleed the air from the tube? Or just leave it like it is?
