@dano my car does not have a sandwich plate.. hmmm@Igor I'm pretty sure I've located where your #2 option is, but it doesn't look like the sender will fit in the spot (not enough clearance). Seems like some people are running a line from that spot and mounting the sender elsewhere.I checked out NASIOC and a few of the other forums, but it seems like a lot of the pictures are no longer there which is what I'm hoping to find.
You have a bit more room in the rear.
I'm not a fan of blowing for a long time anyways ; )
Is this the one you guys are talking about? If I pull that one, won't it throw a light on the dash?
that is the one but no it will not throw a code. I have had mine off since the spring and no light. The factory switch only lights up when you have less than 2.1 psi at which point it's already too late.
I'm a little confused. Isn't that where the OEM sensor is? If I pull that sensor out, wouldn't it put the oil light on the dash? Hard to see in the picture but there is a connector at the top of it with two wires. Will I have to connect those wires in with the new wires of the Autometer sending unit?
Awesome. Thanks for all the info!
Just remember that you need to change the oil gallery plug itself. The thread for the auto-meter sender is likely NPT and the thread for the OEM sender is BSP. There are several vendors who offer a replacement sender. Also clean the area before removing the sender so you can check for leaks after (and not push stuff into the engine oil).
Ah frustration. I can't get the alternator back in with the sending unit in place. Tips?
Yea and I need about another half inch to move the alternator down so that it will line up for the belt adjustment hole
