We remote mounted the oil pressure sending unit in order to keep the weight of the sender off the aluminum block. We’ve seen blocks develop hairline cracks due to having heavy accessory set-ups mounted to them. It is always a better idea to remote mount these type of items. The local Earl’s retailer in Hawthorne, ANplumbing.com ,set us up with this 7 inch end to end line paired with a 90 degree fitting.
We threaded the hose to the sender and put some gold Kapton heat resisting tape on the hose to protect it from exhaust heat. We put the BSPT to A/N adaptor in a plug in the block near where the OEM dummy light sender went and screwed the hose to that.
Here is Vince installing the sender unit.
We secured the sender to the car using an Adel clamp and an existing bolt.
Now we had to route the gauge wires into the car’s interior. Vince uses a drill to make a hole under the cowl cover through the firewall. Several other things pass through the firewall here so this was a good, protected spot to do it.
The hole was drilled near the base of the windshield.
