Re: Universal 5432 Oil Pressure Sending unit

Thanks Mark, Stanley~ I appreciate the responses.

Stanley: That's the gist I got from anything I could fine online (which wasn't much). The "T" fitting could be disastrous. Is the only purpose for the current switch, the oil warning light? I would do without that and be happy with just the gauge if it would allow me to do away with any "t" type assembly down there.
My engine runs perfectly and is in great shape. I hate to have a catastrophic failure because of something vibrating loose. It's also not the easiest place to inspect.

Thanks again

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.

My understanding is that you have to remove the oil pressure switch from the engine, and add a "t" so that switch and sending unit can be connected to the same port on the engine.

Universal 5432 Oil Pressure Sending unit

Forgive me if this has been addressed but I can't locate any info. I am replacing my instrument panel on my CAL and the new one has an gauge for oil pressure where my original didn't. I've purchased the oil pressure sending unit for the new panel but after inspecting the engine and consulting the manual, can find no location for said switch. Any help is appreciated. I've just recently found a p post that suggests it's just above the starter motor on the port side of the engine.

Thanks for the help gents.
