Re: Mp kill switch
Codi: great point safety wise. Great idea on the inertia switch. Not a lot of folks know about these life savers (it's in your new cars owners manual how to reset) . I learned the hard way that they even existed about 20 years ago. I was still working graveyard patrol and driving a brand new Crown Vic ( one of the best cars Henry's kids ever built) and was engaged in the pursuit of a wanted murderer. The chase reached speeds of 120 mph and there were shots being fired at me that took out the passenger side windshield. Air support was tailing and we went off reading in pursuit across a moved hayfield at about 80. I hit some ruts in the field and the engine died.
Well S____ thought I. His car blew up crossing the hayfield and others involved in the chase eventually captured him after a shootout. After the dust settled I had my patrol car towed in to the county garage. Being a gearhead I inquired what caused my sudden engine failure and was educated on the inertia switch and the location of the reset button. Sorry to be so wordy but it all seems like it happened yesterday.
In the past, I have wired my electric fuel pumps so that the ground goes through the oil pressure sender. As long as there is oil pressure the circuit is complete. Lose oil pressure to zero and the circuit is open and the fuel pump dies.
Still use it on any of my cars that are fed electrically.
