  1. I'd like to keep the stock gauge working, so what size T-fitting do I need? Is the autometer fitting the same as the threads on the sender that goes on the extension on the block? if so i can just take that down to home depot and find something....
     
  2. the size of the fitting for the new gauge and the stock gauge are the same.
    I got my T fitting @ auto-zone. good luck
     
  3. I got a 1/8" T-fitting, my fitting can thread into it, but not very far, is this ok? I'm assuming the Tee is tapered :shrug:

    Should I use Teflon tape as well?
     
  4. Yes you should use teflon tape. You need to make sure that you get a good seal so that no oil leaks out.

  5. Go to autozone and go to their little ricer section. Look for their gauges. I notice they now have a "oil pressure guage kit". It comes with the right side t-fitting and parts needed to use the stock sender and the new one.

    It's basically the same parts i put together on my own all in one little kit.
