Where is the best place for the sender? Is the billet oil filter cap the best/only way to do this? Thanks.

This got me thinking as well, after some searching I didn't find much but did find this, Powerstroke Nation - View Single Post - Oil pressure gauge

Oil Pressure test port, other option instead of the billet filter caps. I'm sure you have already looked but dieselmanor.com has some good instructions for just about all the other gauges and such. Looks like a PITA to get to and setup though :doh:

Fuel is simple from what I know, just an adapter like the coolant. FP is the last gauge I need.

Thats for sure :eek: :eek:wned:


Billet cap might be some cheap insurance. Some way of plugging directly into the oil cooler from up top would be nice, but I'm guessing thats not how they designed it.
