    Fitting an oil pressure gauge to zlet

    Ages ago I got an electric oil pressure gauge in exchange for a big mac meal and when Im on swapping the front wishbones over I might as well fit it. On the oil pump there are no blanks but there is an oil pressure switch for the dash oil light. Where do I put the new sender? do I bin the standard oil pressure switch and fit it in the place of that or do I need to get a little t-piece and fit the new one and standard one on either end?
    It would definitely go better with an engine in it

    I never even thought of putting it there but given my drilling skills that could well end very badly . I might see if there is an adaptor that would screw into there the bango bolt goes and have a thread on the other end to fit the pressure sensor. That way could be a bit safer for me .
