Two down one to go.Didn't have an available hole for the temp sender & tube so I had to make one.I have this really cool tool that makes perfect holes...I'll put a gromet in after I get the oil line hooked up......

I have used those. Hell of a lot cleaner holes then using a holesaw. Gauges look good :thumbs:

That Greenlee kit was given to me by my ex son-in-law about ten years ago,don't know where he got it and didn't ask :jester: he wouldn't have clue what it is nor how to use it.I figured I'd use it some day.I used a 1/2'' drive ratchet and it took only about two minutes,if I would've used an impact it would've taken only seconds...

Holy crap,just checked the 'net,they average about $200.00.Definately something I wouldn't buy :eek:

UPDATE.......done!!! :D

The gauge kit came with plastic tubing for the oil pressure gauge which was too short(Figured it might be)so I bought a copper tube kit(12') and fittings to adapt it to the existing oil pressure switch.Hard to get to and very little space to work(the lift was in the way a little),broke the switch removing it so I had to get a new one :(.Got it all together and no leaks :thumbs:Might have to re-connect the water temp aire though...according to ALLDATA the PCM used it to set certain perameters to run the engine.Funny,I haven't noticed anything different with it dis-connected :dunno:
