    Special T Auto Oil Pressure Gauge Sender

    Easy to install. Worked like a charm. A little shorter than the previous model the PO had on the car, so you may need a hair extra length of wire to run to it. I simply had to reroute my existing wire - only took a few seconds to do so.

    I also just installed one but its much longer than the stock one was, still I think it works better than the the old original one did.

    I purchased one of Hervey's pressure sender units for the gauge. It lasted about 4 months before going out

    Hopefully I just found the bad one in the lot.....
    You can't buy happiness, but you can buy a DeLorean and that's sort of the same thing....

    Indeed you may have gotten a bad one from the "nest".
    Mine is on the car since 2008 and still good.

    It is a Corvette part that happens to work in the DeLorean. You just need to make sure you get the 80 psi version.

    You can buy them for less than $10 on RockAuto:
