I have a '72 FJ40 in which the previous owner installed a Chevy 350 engine. I am completely rewiring with the Kwik Wire wiring harness and am realizing that the dash gauge cluster is electric and the Chevy 350 currently has a mechanical gauge. Is this as easy as replacing the mechanical gauge with an electric gauge and then connecting to the dash cluster or is there another step that I am missing?

Did the '72 FJ40 come with electric oil pressure gauge?

Are you running an F.5 motor? I see the external oil filter with the connection underneath- is that stock?


no

that's a 2F with a oil cooler

the F1.5 pre-12/74 oil sender is on the drivers side lower rear engine block area

but ,

hooks up w/ same type / style exactly button connector same in kind 100%
