Low Oil Indicator Light #1
So I'm slowly getting this barn find 1978 DT125E back to running condition but having an issue with the low oil indicator light staying on in the tach gauge. I pulled the float switch out of the oil injection tank and the float is free. I also unplugged the float switch to check if the light on the tack would go out and it did. I installed the float switch back into the oil tank, hooked up the wires, filled with oil and turn on the key. The light is still staying on. So i guess I try to find a float switch or just live with the light always staying on.

Any suggestions?
Thanks!

In neutral, the light will always be on. They designed it this way so you know if the light is working.

That has been known to confuse quite a few new owners!

I have a 78 400 on that my neutral light is burned out, so I use the low oil warning light as a neutral of sorts.
