finally installed my oil pressure gauge today. Took me about an hour, and I love it! Always wanted to do this. Now I have gone and done it! Cheers!

Looks good. Almost 40psi. What tractor was it you were working on? A few more pictures of the details of the install would be nice.

a little advice from personal experience. get rid of the plastic line. it will break and it won't take long. it can't take the vibrations of the engine. could hardly stand being on a regular car engine.:smile1:

A 3" section of threaded 1/8" NPT, with a 90 degree coupler. Pull the steering wheel, dash, and unplug everything in there. I hacked the dash making the hole for the gauge, but it doesn't show. Use teflon tape on all threaded connections. It actually was real easy to install.
