Hey guys, I've seen some add an oil Temp gauge but what about an Oil Pressure?  Has anyone done this? if so could an electronic aftermarket one for a car work?

Hi CC, I'm not sure on the electronic version because you have to drill and thread a hole in the engine casing for a Boss to be situated? You could utilise the oil filler hole with a blank plug drilled and threaded to take a pressure gauge similar to this? Maybe someone else will chip in with idea's?

I'm no expert but surely the crankcase ( if thats the right terminology ) or sump will not be under oil pressure ?
I  would of thought oil pressure would be measured at the oil pump outlet ( someone tell me if I'm talking bollocks )

according to the FSM "check the oil pressure in the following manner."
o Remove the main oil gallery plug.

o lnstall the oil pressure gauge with adaptor in the position shown in the figure



So short of installing a fitting in the Main plug and running a line from there I think the only other option would be where the OEM sender is... same as you would do it in a car...

An oil pressure gauge seems like work for the sake of work, could be wrong tho I spose

Not really... I've installed them countless times in cars (Mechanical & Electrical).. It's a fairly simple job.  Hardest part is finding a good spot to tap into.  Found a nice spot, right under the oil filter there is a journal that's just plugged by a bolt.  Remove that bolt and put the line in there.

I personally like the idea of having it.. a lot less work then having to check pressure when there's something wrong (FSM says to connect gauge to main oil drain plug hole costing you $$$ for new oil)

I'll be starting a new thread soon with some of the mods I'm doing along with pics so you can see. (just painted the front rim yesterday lol)
