    oil pressure gauge

    where abouts is the best bit to screw the oil pressure sender unit into that comes wi the gauge pack i recently bought. it looks like it should screw into the block somewhere and the two wires connect onto the terminals on the top of it which goes to the gauge?

    ive 'remotely' mounted my gauge sender...this is done by using a braided pipe and t-piece...which u can buy onn ebay etc......the braided pipe is conected to the oil pressure switch thread on the oil pump...the other end of the braided pipe conects to the t-piece..the t-piece houses the oil pressure sender that was included with the gauge and also the oil pressure switch which allows my oil pressure dash light to still operate...then u run your sender and earth wire from the gauge to the sender through a gromet just above the 'go fast' pedal

    cheers i will need to check what the thread size is on the new sender as i got the gauges from hong kong but they are made by autogauge so they should fit?

    a sandwhich plate can be used aswell so av found out but cany seem to find one for the z20let anywhere. heard that it sits to close to the wishbone

    ive got one fitted to my gsi

    i removed one of the "bungs" from the oil pump (about a 7-8 mm allan key) and took it down to my local hydraulics company and got them to make me a adaptor that fitted the new sender and the oil pump, cost around £3 to make, make sure you use tpfe tape when u screw into the oil pump to make sure you dont get any leaks. mines been fitted to car for about 9months and havent had any issues with vibrations etc...

    if i knew how to post pics id show you where to locate it but cant!!lol
