Thanks, but I thought it need to be over 100psi since the oil pressure in our car often exceed 100psi. Did I missed something here?

That J&P gauge goes right to the oil fitting on the side of a motorcycle so you can see it when looking down on the motor, you'd need quite a bit of fabrication for it to work on a G.

I'll shoot some pics and post tonight of my gauge setup.

I was just posting a small one that can be obtained. I prefer an analog gauge and will look for a small one that can mount "somewhere" in the car. I did a quick search and will keep trying.

Yeah, I saw that one and was hoping something real small could be found and I prefer analog too, but luckily this one is pretty unobtrusive~





I just wrapped some bunched-up electrical tape to get some width around that prong so it's a snug fit in that fob slot, and a little extra flat tab (protected w/ some tape to keep from scratching) so it will be tight against the dash molding to the left of the slot

Hi, Guys,
I just bought this oil pressure gauge and am a little confused on how to wire it up. The instructions are not really clear - at least to me:

Amazon.com: Auto Meter 2634 Z-Series Electric Oil Pressure Gauge: Automotive Amazon.com: Auto Meter 2634 Z-Series Electric Oil Pressure Gauge: Automotive


Can anyone give me some pointers how to wire this thing.

thanks,

You'll need to fit the sender unit into an appropriate oil passage.

Are you in need or 'wiring' assistance or how/where to hook up the sender?
