Re: \"Real World\" oil pressure
Thats good news to my ears! I had a feeling it was ok, but i needed to make sure. And i knew someone here would have an answer for me! [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] (Thanks Al!)
I replaced the sending unit a couple months ago, and the same problem came back right around when my timing cover gasket started leaking two weeks ago, which is when i ordered for the Autometer gauge.
I was digging through Mitchell earlier and found a TSB for ~88 trucks where the sending unit and resistor wire didnt work properly, and the gauge would read erratically, like mine was doing. They apparently issued a different sending unit and 20ohm resistor wire to correct it. Shame i didnt think to look this up earlier, i wouldnt have stressed as much over it!
But anyway, right now i did some plumbing, and have both senders (OEM and Autometer's) in. I eventually want to figure out a way to fool the dash gauge so that it wont trip a CEL like it has been doing on and off today/yesterday.
