Oil pressure gauge sender location?

I am wanting to install the "actual" oil pressure gauge I had in my 97 in my '05 6.0L. The '97 had a handy orifice at the front of the block. Is there a similar location on the 6.0L?

Re: Oil pressure gauge sender location?

I hear a lot of guys putting them in the top of the oil filter cap. I also would like to know too. Kind of would be a pain changing oil every time to unhook the wires, or unthread it from the cap so you could use the socket.

It's right next to the base of the filter.

Re: Oil pressure gauge sender location?

Climb up there and look down just behind and slightly left of the filter buried down between all the $hit. I had my bypass filter pressure line plumbed out of the pressure switch port for 2 years until I removed it last month. Giterdone!

Re: Oil pressure gauge sender location?

Snoboy, are you indicating I should remove the oil pressure switch and replace it with my autometer sending unit?

Re: Oil pressure gauge sender location?

There's no easy way to access the oil pressure test port, huh?

Re: Oil pressure gauge sender location?

My bad! I thought you were doing a mechanical gauge. You'll need a street T and a sending unit adaptor so you can tap both sending units into the same spot [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/bleh.gif[/img]. Or you could buy the Oilgaurd filter 6.0 filter cap and put the Autometer sender in it. Looks cool [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smokin.gif[/img] and less PITA then the aforementioned method. Its your call bro. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shrug.gif[/img]

Re: Oil pressure gauge sender location?

Thanks for the ideas. I'll have to play around with them both.

Re: Oil pressure gauge sender location?

I have the FS-2500 bypass and could probably get a T for the cap. But since there are two un-used ports in the filter housing I'm going to try the un-used pressure port.
