are there any other points my oil pressure sender can tap into
rather than the one just above the oil filter? The reason I ask is that I've
just fitted a set of Dynomax headers from Summit and the only problem is the
sender won't refit either before or after bolting up the header. By the look
of it the previous owner has put a small extension onto the sender to clear
the headers that the car previously had.
So if there is another tap in point that is currently blanked off that you
guys know about please? Or a top idea that my newb head has not thought of?
For info only the car is a 1970 Camaro with a 454 LS6 fitted. Thank you for
Steve de Sainte Croix.
The 454 in my Suburban (motor came out of a 1975) has a port by
Cylinder #1, on the upper side of the block, close to the front
edge of the block, This is the left hand side, left being relative
to the direction of the car, ie "driver's side" (for US cars!).
This is a better place for the gauge anyhow, as it is a lot
farther from the pump than the oil filter and pressure loss
will show up earlier there.
