will this work with the braided 1/8 line ?

Asked by: 72rtchallenger
Thank you for your inquiry. The 1226 is an electric gauge, using a sending unit designed to mount to the oil pressure port on the engine. Unless you are dealing with extreme vibration and want to remotely mount the sender, braided line is not needed.If you elect to do this, our braided hose kits do come with the correct adapter.
