This is oil squirting out of the pressure gauge hose as I crank the engine with the starter. I can only imagine the spectacular nature of the actual break down in progress.
"Low Pressure" is an understatement. It doesn't have a "pumping air" or "well is dying" warning. We can only drop the pump twenty feet and then it will be time for a new well. Of course, there are not a lot of 56 year old wells out there which are still operational.
