Ohhh!!!! Yes, there's an after-market set of gauges mounted underneath the dash. I noted last time I looked that there was an oil pressure gauge there. I just assumed that something branched somewhere, and that stuff was still stock!
(This is what happens when you buy a modded Mustang from someone else...)
As to why I had to pull the P/S pump, well... Keep in mind that this is a '68 302 in a '66 body, with a '66 P/S pump. I suspect that it's not designed the same. You can see the two P/S pump hoses in the pictures above. When the P/S pump is mounted, those hoses are *right next to* that sending unit. Given that the connectors are mounted to the top of the extension, as you can see from the pictures, I discerned that there was insufficient swing room for a crescent in between the P/S pump hoses and the headers to make it reasonable to do the job without removing the pump. (I could only barely get a hand in there with the pump mounted, and my hands aren't that big...) Even if I could have done it, which I doubt, I decided I'd hate life a lot less if I just pulled the P/S pump.
If I hadn't jacked up the hose fitting, the whole thing probably would have been done in a matter of an hour or so. Probably best I did, though. I realized as I was doing it that I forgot to torque the bolts securing the P/S pump bracket to the block. :run_over:
Now all I have to do is figure out what gauge package it is that I have so I can get the right line...
