well, after looking... its the oil pump.. specifically the sender- anyone have a DL style ea81 pump or senders (kind for the idiot light) and the plug (for the guage sender hole)

and now you need to run a wire from the yellow-black wire to the oil sender, and the yellow-green wire to the temp guage on the manifold

I will keep my conversion comments to my self here.

Tom was really on to something good with the oil pressure cutoff safety and the use of a relay. the combo of the two would be the best set up.
do not run your fuel pump thru a toggle switch. taping power off coil + is cool as it will only be hot with the key on.
you may need to install a in line pressure regulator to keep the carb happy depending on what your pump is putting out.

and the fuel pump was controled by the old maf sensor. there is a switch inside.
