how to install oil and volt gauge

Recommended Posts

The oil gauge sensor would normally be installed where the existing sensor is installed using a pipe tee. A volt sensor can tap into the electrical system anywhere almost, One wire to a positive lead that turns off with the switch off, and the other wire to ground.

One advice and one info.

1) use a flexible line not a copper one like I did. Someone here use a braided teflon line and I cannot find same here. Would very much like to know where I could order one online...

2) For the volt meter I used a Radiodhack rectangular meter (about 12$ US) that I mounted inside an audio cassette plastic individual case and that I plug in the cigarette lighter receptable. The recess under the stereo holds it in a stable position. It's maybe not as tidy as a dash mounted meter but it's cheap, easy to install, and you can carry it with you to another car.
