During a drive over to Iowa yesterday I got the "Check Gauges" signal and noticed the the oil pressure gauge was in the basement.
A quick stab at the throttle raised the pressure and the gauge went back to normal. When I got back to town I went straight to NAPA and ordered a new oil pressure sending unit. When I removed the sensor the male plug and female sensor were filled with oil. I cleaned everything up, I have already installed the "T" fitting in the block and it is ready for the oil pressure line or the electronic sensor. Space will be tight but I think electronic sending unit would work. I know the mechanical line will work. I will also likely install a trans temp gauge to monitor the fluid temp in the pan.
The great debate is the type of gauges to install - Mechanical or electronic.
Just was curious on your thoughts.
