TOPIC: Oil Pressure Gage Install

Oil Pressure Gage Install 7 years 1 week ago #1

Since the stock tachometer is almost useless, I decided to take it out and replace it with an oil gage.

Nice!

Are you using a shift light instead?

I mounted a tachometer right below the speedo. Both are the same size and the tach is an easy read with shift light.

Somehow some of the pictures in the picture cache got out of sync. While the correct picture was shown in full screen, the small pic inside the post got mixed up on a few posts. I have resent the cache for all images - which seems to have fixed the issue. Sorry about the mixup.

Nice job on the oil pressure gauge modification.

Makes much more sense then the stock configuration IMO.
Where did you get the Oil pressure gauge?

I think I would go with a side by side mount for the tach and speedometer.

The gauge is just a stock 2" that can be gotten at any auto parts place. I used the standard tubing configuration but think the electric sending unit one would be a bit easier. Also the hole for the gauge has to be made just a taste bigger.

As far as placement goes, I very rarely find a drag on the street and when, then the shift light lets me know when. This is different and that's what I'm all about. :laugh:

Man I gotta say you have some great ideals, how did you mount the tach? What's the little toggle switch for?
