Oil pressure sender for guage on clevo.

Hi all,

I have a gs dash in my xb which has the oil pressure guage but it doesnt work. I think it is because i have no sender. Where abouts should it be? If i get a aftermarket oil pressure guage will i have to get a sender to suit it or do they come with one?

Basically i would like to know anything about what i need to buy and do to fit a oil guage to the clevo.

I know there are mechanical and electric ones, i dont like the idea of having a copper pipe all the way to the dash so i'm guessing the elec ones are the best to go for?

Thanks guys

Aaron

You should have a sender of some description. Without it, oil would be flowing out the hole.

Is it the same dash/engine the car came out with??

On my mustang, the previous owner changed engines, and then hooked up the oil pressure sender unit (for a light) that was on the motor to the factory oil pressure gauge. Of course it didn't work. All it required was a new sender unit. I took it to my auto electrician to get that fixed with a few other problems. Very cheap fix! I don't have my ute at the moment, so I can't discribe the location of it for you.

You will find the oil pressure switch/sender at the back of the manifold. Its a silver looking thing bout the size of a 50cent piece and about 2 inches high. VDO part number is 360.002 or 360.003, one works the opposite to the other I cant remember which is which.

the motor probably has the wrong sender unit in

there should be 2 types, 1 unit for the oil light, and the other is for reading oil pressure

this car you bought sounds like it has been messed with big time

hope you dont find too many other surprises

The car has a new motor. Was originally a 302 and has been replaced with a rebuilt and slightly worked 351. The dash has been replaced with the GS/GT one from the stock one so i think the oil pressure guage was just never conected up. Were the GT dash oil pressure guages electric or mechanical? All the other guages work, speedo, tach, volts, temp...

I'm pretty sure they are electrical. They run a wire from the sender to the gauge.

Yes..they are electrical. But the switch to run just an oil light is a small black screw in type, and the sender to run the oil gauge is the bigger silver screw in type one. If your running a light AND a gauge then you need a brass adapter to allow the use of both the switch and sender. Any auto can supply this for you.
