Oil / water sensors
#1
I want to fit oil ad water temp gauges but still want to keep the original ones working ( dash was re-conned properly by the PO ) the gauges seem to work fine with the oil pressure moving up to high and as she warms up it drops to about the middle. I'm thinking of changing the cam next year so I will do an engine health check, compression test, temp check and want an actual reading for the oil pressure.
The water temp I'm going to put into the water pump as I have MSD ignition so dont use the vacuum / heat sensor and I've bought an adaptor for the sensor I have.
The problem is the oil sender, I think it may be a pukka Ford one in there and works well, so I've been soaking the thread ( as best I can) for a week and driving the car to heat the engine up and trying again to free it every now and again but it wont budge.
I dont want to rip the can off to get at the fitting so is there anywhere else I can put sensor ( the one by the oil filter and fuel pump is a bit busy as I have power steering ) or any more ideas of how to get the sender off without wrecking it?
Thanks for any ideas and pictures to go with them please!!
