Oil Pressure & Oil Temp Guage Installation
Trying to install a couple of guages in my car manually.
Got everything mounted, and the like. But need to know where to feed the Oil Pressure hose, and sending unit for the Oil Temperature.
For the water temp, it was easy simply because you can purchase the adaptor that fits right into your radiator hose, but I`m a little confused with these other two.
Any insite would be appreciated.
The car is an older model one. An AE86 Toyota Corolla with 4age engine.
If some1 might be able to circle where the two items go and post it back to the forum, I would give my undying affection and love. - Here`s a pic of what a 4age looks like:And thus it was spoken by the mighty Uss. And it was so.

Well, I dunno about Toyotas, but for VWs, there were a variety of adapters:
drain plug (screw it in where the drain plug is)
dipstick (yep, just right down in there)
oil switch adapter (screw it in in place of the original oil light sensor, only recommended if your sensor has a warning light)

Are the fittings for the gauges Metric or SAE ???? You'll probably need to install a"Tee" fitting where the original oil sensor was located and attach both sensors there. Since the Toyota will be metric, you may have to modify the Tee fitting to be able to hook it all up, but that's no big problem. Just need a tap to make thre right threads. Good Luck.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iE9TN...eature=related
