    Unhappy Getting too old for this

    I only spent about 90mins fiddling under the bonnet today, and my back is killing me

    Anyhoo, I finally got the two new gauges hooked up, and despite snapping two 6mm allen keys (then buggers were F'tight) all is well, and all the adaptor bits I got from The US worked perfectly

    So any 2.2 owners wondering how/where to hook up to..

    Oil pressure sender - just under the blanking plate on the inlet cam




    Oil Temp sender - just to the rear of the EGR valve
