I have this oil gauge and it works when the engine oil is cold (engine just started and for the first 20 minutes or so); then it goes to zero at idle, but goes back up again to normal when under acceleration. Would it be the sending unit on the motor? Thx

Is the "pressure sender." a pressure sending unit? And is it included? If not what's the part number for it? "Gauge kit includes 1/8” NPT pressure sender, 1/4” NPT adapter," Thanks

Asked by: freebirdinflyt
Pressure sender or sending unit can be used interchangeably. This gauge includes our 2242 sender.

is this mechanical

Asked by: jeffy
This is not a mechanical. This is what we consider a short sweep electric. The mechanical option in this series is model 1432.

Can the Designer Black Gauges be ordered through the Custom Shop with white needles instead of orange ones.

Asked by: Bruno
Hello Bruno, thank you for your question. Yes, it is possible. The whole gauge set would have to be designed in the custom shop to match that series.

Can I remove the ring and glass? My 68 C20 has a 1 piece glass that behind the bezel with markings for all the gauges.

Asked by: Bongo Jim
Thank you for your question. We would highly recommend not removing the bezel and glass as that would void the warranty and expose the internals of the gauge to the outside environment. The bezel is not made to be removed.

Hello i have this.installed on a 6.0 vortec chevy engine and its not working why and how can i make it work

Asked by: Alexander yacoub
Hi Alexander, thank you for contacting us. This may require some additional troubleshooting with our Technical Support Team, but make sure the sender body, usually through the threads, is making a ground in the engine. If an excessive amount of thread sealant is used or the sender is remote mounted, this can prevent a ground which will prevent the gauge from moving off the zero point. If you've confirmed the sender is grounded, I would recommend reaching out to our service team with additional information. Give us a call at 815-895-8141, hit the Chat link at the top of the page, or email us here:
