'88 Chevy K2500(6lug) 6.2 Diesel TH700R4 4x4 reg. cab...
I have an aftermarket set of gauges to install but I am having a dilemma!
The only place I can see to install the temp sender(mech) is in place of the
factory sender. Will removing the factory temp sender mess anything up? I am
not very well versed in diesels and I don't know if any other systems are
dependant on the factory sender. I also need a location to install the oil
pressure gauge fitting(also mech). If it involves removing the existing
sender(I also need to know where it is), then the same concern as the temp
sender. Lastly, with an ammeter gauge(wow, elec)(The owner of the truck
didn't want a voltmeter), can I run a separate wire for the gauge and leave
the current wire hooked up or does it HAVE to be run through the gauge?
Thanx to all ahead of time...
I would guess you've got an identical port on the opposite head for the
water temp. Both heads should be the same, so one should have a gauge probe
and the other should have a plug, instead.
The oil pressure sender may be at the back of the block by the firewall.
Could be a real pain to get to. This should be seen from the top side of
the motor and more toward the driver side of the "valley" but behind and
separate from the intake.
The oil temp may be able to be probed in the block. Check to see if you
have a plug right above your oil filter or filter adapter in the side of the
block. If not, then maybe you can tap into your "hot" oil cooler line.
not necessarily - I don't know for sure, but it's worth a check. I'm
familiar with the gassers and with a 6.5 TD, but not the 6.2. I don't think
there was much physical difference between the 6.2 and the 6.5, as the heads
from a 6.5 will bolt onto a 6.2.
No one else responded, so I thought I would try to help. I'm 80% sure the
locations I mentioned are right, but wouldn't bet my life savings on it.
You'll have to check and see for yourself, but I think I'm right on the
