Oil pressure sender units
Yet another question to do with these bloody sender units guys!
If I had the original EB oil pressure sender unit hooked up to an XB GT oil pressure gauge, would it read properly?
The reason I ask is: are there two different types of oil pressure senders? One that sends a signal to say, a light, that comes on when there is no pressure and off when there is pressure (like the factory warning light). The second type will actually send a signal to a gauge that will read how much pressure is there. Is this correct or does one pressure sender do both jobs, depending on if you have a light or a gauge?
Reason is my XB GT gauge doesnt read anything when I hook up the factory wire to the EB pressure sender unit on the block. Could it mean that the sender is faulty? Could the gauge be faulty? So can I check if the gauge works by shorting the wire to the chassis or something?
Finally, does anyone know if an XC pressure sender unit will screw into the EB pressure sender unit hole? Should I try and see? (it would save me buying a new one)
