Aftermarket oil pressure sender

I’ve got a 1999 Taurus with the Duratec 24V DOHC engine.

I am trying to add a Bosche electric oil pressure gauge. The sending unit will not fit in the OEM location.

Anyone have experience adding another oil pressure sending unit? Where did you add it? Appreciate any help.

Thought you might have got some replies from your post on the Taurus club forum . Dont know the location on that car but is it possible you could get an adaptor / connection to facilitate the sender ?

Never, never, never give up.

I received no feedback on the Taurus owners forum. Not sure if I could get an adapter. That would likely be something custom-made because you’re trying to measure pressure. Not likely to work too well in a soft/rubber hose.

Re: Aftermarket oil pressure sender

We had a workshop kit of brass joints of various shapes and sizes that we used . " t" pieces , " elbow " joints ," straight thrus " etc. that we could always contrive some suitable fitting that worked perfectly . Could always use a mechanical gauge kit if stuck and cant come up with an adaptor .

Never, never, never give up.
