Re: Universal 5432 Oil Pressure Sending unit

Be very careful! Having an oil switch and oil sender on one fitting with a T connector can lead to disaster. The fittings are too heavy and the vibration often causes the nipple between the block and T piece to fail. When this happens, all the oil gets pumped out with disasterous consequesces.

You are better off forgetting the warning light and just using the gauge with the correct sender.
