    Default "Functional" oil pressure sender, digital dash

    I'm looking to make the oil pressure gauge on my digital dash move, instead of just constantly display 5 bars all the time. I can't seem to find the part number for the sender (the large one) that makes the gauge move. Does one for a 5.0 Mustang work or do I need a different one? If you've done the conversion let me know what part number you used. Thanks.

    See here: http://www.foxtbirdcougarforums.com/...ital-oil-guage

    I want the stock digital dash oil pressure gauge to function like a gauge.

    got it,, nice explaination over there.

    yeah i knew the smaller pres switches were snap switches sorta.

    I grafted a 87 5.0 body harness from a full digi cluster car into my 87 3.8L car to convert it to 5.0.

    i saw the brick on the new harness but it was not present on the old.

    im gonna have to pay close attention to this when we finally get to start up.

    I'm just curious if anyone is running the BWD S334 and if it works correctly. If not then which sender does ?

    It'll work.

    Don't expect it to read like a fully manual gauge. It'll move a little, but not as much as you'd want if you were trying to get an idea between hot/cold pressures.

    You need some type of extension tibe to go with it. That sender will not thread directly into the block simply due to It's dimensional size. The threads are correct. It just won't fit.

    I've got the extension tube. I just need to pick up the sender. I'll grab it on my next parts store run.
