#1 Mechanical Oil Pressure Gauge

Post by SimonBrown » Wed May 23, 2018 4:19 pm

I wish to check the Oil Pressure on my Series 2 OTS and already have an old Smiths mechanical gauge. Would anybody know where I could obtain a pipe and fittings to connect the gauge to the car, preferably where the sender screws in?

Thank you

Simon

Try M&C Wilkinson as they sell a complete kit so can also supply the fittings without the gauge.

Places like Demon Tweeks sell all the fittings and adaptors you will ever need. If you are replacing the unreliable electric one then remove the sender and fit your pipe there. If you are adding it as second gauge then e.g. Demon Tweeks sell T pieces to allow both the electrical sensor and your mechanical one to be plumbed to the same take off at the oil filter housing. Just making clear I have no connection to Demon Tweeks...don't think I have ever ordered from them...

In the US, try Nossinger Instruments, Mamaroneck, NY Smiths dealer. The best !! Just have to add a bit for shipping if you can't find nearby.
