Just been trying to wire up an oil gauge in my car and have hit a snag, I have been looking for the oil pressure sender on the block and could not find it in its normal spot near the oil filter, however I did find what I *think* is the sender which is at the back of the block behind the manifold, is this actually the sender? I have attached a pic of the unit, it does not look like any unit I have looked for online, is it electrical or mechanical and how would I go about wiring it up?
Any help is much appreciated
Its an autometer gauge, looks like i need to buy a sender for it and a line to run to the gauge (I didnt buy it new).
I should be able to just unscrew it and screw in the new sender, and the new sender should have an oil line that runs to the autometer gauge?
Well I would say it is mechanical, there is a clear tube running from the back of the gauge which I can see has had oil running through it. I bought a copper line from repco and it came with several threaded adaptors, I just cant see where to run it into the block, is it where that current sending unit is located? In that case I will have to unscrew that sender and screw the copper line straight into the block?
