Oil pressure sender

My boat has a Yanmar 2gm with the "B" instrument panel; therefore, an idiot light and alarm for low oil pressure. Additionally an after market oil pressure gauge has been installed but it was not functional when I got the boat. While attmpting to sort out the problem with the oil pressure gauge I determined that Yanmar oil presssure sensor has only on-off output not variable resistance output needed for the pressure gauge. Variable resistance senders are readily availble. Should I tee both the on-off sender and the variable resistance sender off the oil pressure sensor port?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
