Oil pressure gauge

Has anyone added one? I got my voltmeter, fuel gauge, and trail tech in, so the last thing i was thinking would be oil pressure. Let's see what you got!

Hey Ultimate1, I added autometer temp and oil gauges a couple of months ago. The gauges and sending units were ordered online. I was concerned with threads not mathcing due to vehicle with metric threads, but it was not a problem. The temp guage works flawlessly, but oil pressure has been a different story. The sending unit was large and difficult to get into the same location as the stock one; suceeded with baby steps and bloody knuckles. When I first fired it up the gauge pegged and stayed that way until warmed up. I was shocked the Teryx ran higher oil pressure than my 0-100psi gauge was reading. While running hard it would be in the high 90's to pegged on the gauge and then back to 40-50 at idle. The owners manual states something like 80psi and that sounds more appropriate, so I'm not sure while I'm getting such high readings. Holloween weekend I noticed some oil dripping and when investigated found that I actually blew out a small hole in the sending unit. The sending unit was only rated for 0-100psi and I'm hoping that a replacment sending with higher range will stay together. I'm alright if the gauge reads pegged when running hard, my concern is low OP. I would sugest removing stock sending units and taking them to knowledgeable auto parts store to find matching threads and matching the ohm's. I ordered mine off of Egauges and got lucky. Sorry for the novel, hope this helps.

OK thanks for the heads up. Auto meter makes an oil pressure gauge that goes to 150 psi, that would work. It is mechanical though. It is a full sweep face, compared to the 90 degree ones that i already have, but they are close. Anyone else put one in????
