(other option would be an oil-dipstick with sender but doesn't look that good to me).|
|08/06/2004 13:23:20||Alistair||Surely the best bet is to use the oil pressure switch with an appropriate adaptor? That should be fairly readily available for Ford engines (and I think it will be the same as most/all of that era).|

Im on my second in four years. Better is to fit an oil cooler with an in line sender fitting. I couldnt get you when it did the oil plumbing many years ago. The location would also give a truer report on the oil being sent round the engine. Look in the deamon tweeks catelogue or other performance boy racer outlet.
I havent seen switch adapters for temp senders.
