    I don't have a buyer for you but I have a question: I have the same set up - what did you use for the oil pressure sender to the gauge - an adapter or resistors? If an adapter where did you get it?

    This post is over 3 years old and the OP only has 9 posts to his credit. Chances are he doesn't frequent MUD anymore. He hasn't logged on since March 7 2007.

    Just a friendly heads up.

    I don't know what everyone else has done, but I put a brass 1/8th inch 90 degree elbow on a short nipple and used the stock sender. Not sure what threads are on the stock sender, probably metric or BSP, but it is tapered and so it fit. No leaks after 10 years.

    Hope this helps.
