Is changing the Oil Pressure relief valve in situ straight forward and accessible, I presume easier from underneath? is screwing it back in hard to compress and start the thread?

Yes.
No.
Yes.

Mac, not sure you can even get to it from underneath, I've never considered it. I have swapped them before but never in a Magnette. I was trying, hoping, it would cure a low oil pressure issue. It didn't, of course.

A 1 1/8" ring spanner will be useful. This is a bit of a 'work out', working at at arms length but doable.
I equate this to about 30 stomach crunches or 40 push ups. grinning smiley

Job done, see my post in "What did you do today" The use of a pit, ramp or lift will make this very straight forward task on a RHD drive car but not sure if a LHD would find the column in the way??
