should be small hole in the side of the block.. might have a plug in it. do you have a sender on it now? if you do.. take it out and put the other one there... might have to buy a brass fitting to couple it.

i have found the idiot light connection, but cannot find a pressure point for the manual gauge tube... if anyone who has this engine knows where the point is i would appreciate some help. thank you.

/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif My ONE remaining sober moonguy/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif came in just as I was reading your post, and he was quick to recommend that you use a BRASS STREET TEE in the hole....put the democrat...Oops!...I mean IDIOT light in the end of the tee, and use the available side outlet to connect your mechanical gauge tube/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gifThey can both connect to that one port. Having both systems is a VERY good way to go. On Jeepchicks CJ we will have an audible buzzer which is in conjunction with a light and the rising oil pressure silences the buzzer. It also has a gauge. The buzzer also sounds on high temp./wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif
