yeah i just replaced my temp and oil pressure guages with mechanical ones the oil pressure is on the back looks like a breather with a wire coming off of it and the temp sensor is on the front right side of the intake
Thanks again, stopped raining for a few minutes and I found it right there between the distributor and the coil mounting bracket.
Now another question. The Ford shop manual says to drain the radiator to change the sending unit. Do you really have to do that when it is cold and not pressurized? I mean since it's on the top of the engine basic gravity should keep the radiator fluid inside the manifold shouldn't it? I just hate the thought of going to all the trouble of draining if I don't have to. This of course is if the guage proves to be working and I isolate the problem to be the sending unit..
While we're on sending units and gauge questions, I've never hooked up my ammeter in any truck I've had....kinda wanna do that now that I've got a redtop optima. Any EZ mode instructions? I know it's a noob question but I suck at electrical shiz...
