Thanks for the suggestion may be the solution

Oil pressure gauge replacement

Hi all
E type series 1 2+2
I’m replacing the electrical oil pressure gauge with the capillary type

What do I do with the wires which connect to the current gauge ( lamp obviously stays)

Can they simply be made safe or do I need to do something different

Thanks in advance
