That’ll be a nominal 2.2 Ohm resistor then, probably just as a current limiter.

Oil pumps

Or the gauge has got lazy?..

I’d chuck a fresh gallon of cheap oil and a decent filter in first to be honest although if it’s coming out anyway a quick look at the pickup and bearings is probably the most sensible thing.
