Oil pressure gauge location.

Recommended Posts

I have an oil pressure gauge currently lashed into the car - but want to fit it in a more suitable location- ie in the dash! 

Where is the best place?

I was thinking around where the current position of the fog light switch - but don’t know what is behind this particular CCC1CE33-42D3-4BC1-A7ED-371AE02C2ED0.thumb.jpeg.f81324390c0050f5cc514a0c39eb55ed.jpegAD2C43E7-253E-4DB6-A4AD-8FEB275BB820.thumb.jpeg.a4dc8d014eb59eaa70dda8f6a7d26124.jpeg

I think if you pop the dash off you will find that there is space for the gauge where that's little rocker should switch is.

not sure th at I should the normal switch or lication for a fog light switch, nor is that the usual place for the hazard switch.

you could also go above the fag lighter.

Remove the dashtop ashtray - useless these days if you don't smoke - and fit a dial pod with the wiring and plumbing down behind the dash. You can get period gauges that actually fit into this aperture which are quite retro.... but a good well made (not yucky thin plastic!) gauge holder will do the job.

Hello Mark

                  This how I have done mine a bit OTT but I like it!

But did you not say your Dad was good at this sort of thing?

I am going to change the vacuum gauge for an oil temperature one when I fit the new engine.

Mark, it should look a bit like this behind your dash. A big hole for a gauge and three smaller ones for switches/lamps.

Cheers, Richard

 you never see a gauge showing a problem till you see the smoke hear the knocking then look !!   Oop's   its too late 

bells whistles and horns  buzzers  are   much better  at alerting you that somethings wrong, 

just a different idea

Pete

Well there is certainly an argument to that Pete. But I’ve bought it now so it’s going in ?
