    Default Looking to run the stock oil pressure gauge and an aftermarket gauge

    Has anyone setup two oil pressure gauges. I'm looking to add a real oil pressure gauge and keep the stock one. I imagine I need some sort of T setup on the log.

    I was going to add the oil pressure gauge and a real temp gauge above the radio where the stock EQ would go.

    Bob,

    It's pretty simple. Just add a 'T' prior to the stock sender and run the tube to the new guage. 'T's are typically available at a full service hardware store.

    If you have full accessories, the toughest part is getting to the port in the block to add the 'T'. A 45 degree elbow may be needed for the stock sender to clear a P/S pump.

    Cool sounds good, if anyone has the time snap a couple pics for me of your setups, I'm very visual when it comes to this stuff... LOL

    Whats a good solution to add another temp gauge in addition to the stock temp gauge?

    It's an old pic but it does show 2 of 3 gauges. It's been redone since but I don't have pics. I need to do that soon.
    I had to edit , Shit I got 3 pedals now,and not a new cup holder.
