Sounds like a useful (and unobtrusive) mod to an MG!
What kind/manufacture of float did you use in your sump? Are they
easily procured? I'm sure there's several here who'd be interested in
how you set it up and all. I would be.
There's another option that might be a little more difficult to
calibrate... but... the early, large MGs, VA, SA, WA had a float in the
sump like that in the fuel tank. When a button on the dash was pressed
the Fuel level gage read Oil level.
Anyone made this kind of modification?
Cheers all, Bill.

Subject: Re: Damaged MGA Engine- now low oil warning systems
I built such a level warning into my TD. As my late TD has both and
ignition warning light and ammeter, I thought that redundant. The
ignition warning light is basicaly a charge light or idiot light. So it
is now a low level warning light. When I had the sump off, I installed
a level float. The systems works on the grounding principle where power
is supplied to the light and the ground accomplished by the float. It's
a float on a wire which grounds out the wire coming wire from the lamp.

IMHO: I think what we really need is an oil level sensor.
