I want to switch out my gauges.. purchased new ones already. However, the new oil and temperature gauges have different set ups then the stock ones.
Has anyone changed these out and can help me?
The oil one has a little tube that connects to the back of the gauge which you have to connect to the engine somehow? Can someone tell me where to hook/connect the little tube to on the engine?
The second gauge is the temperature gauge. It has a wire on the back with a piece that looks like it drops down into the engine and sends the temp back to the gauge...
Stock set up, I know there is a sending unit (top back of engine) for temperature that currently sends to the old gauge... and the temp sensor on the front of the engine that keeps track of temperature too, but doesn't send to gauge...
My question is... can I take out the front, lower sensor and hook up the new gauge set up there and abandon the little sensor on the top back of the block that sends info to the old gauge. Will that mess up anything that currently runs off that front, lower temp sensor?
Thanks in advance for ideas, how to's and general info on replacing all my gauges.
