  1. 302 No Oil Pressure Reading

    Classic Tech
    I replaced my oil sending unit on my 302 but when the engine is running the gauge doesn't move. I have grounded the wire and the gauge pegs so I know thats not the problem and since I have driven it plenty of times I know the engine is getting oil. Anything else that could be causing this...

  4. Testing fuel sending unit 67'

    Classic Talk
    I was just making sure how to test to make sure a sending unit is working properly. You take the multimeter and put it on ohms. Then take the positive "prong" and touch it to the part in which the sending unit connection is made. My question is where does the ground "prong" go? Does it connect...

    5.0L Tech
    Hi, I have an '89 GT and I've been getting really weird oil pressure readings. From start up the pressure seems fine and sits a little below the halfway mark on the factory gauge, but when I accelerate or beat on it the oil pressure seems to drop off very drastically. The motor is almost all...

    Im nearing completion on my 90' gt, most likely going to see track time in the next three weeks. However my speedo doesnt work at all.

    I changed the gasket twice w/o removing tank. I was concerned gasket wasn't seating so I removed tank and tried again with no luck. Should I replace sending unit? It's hard to say where gas is actually coming from.
  10. 69 sending unit wire

    Classic Tech
    Tonight I was looking around for a place to route a battery cable from the rear. I barely touched the wire coming out of the sending unit and it broke off where it goes into the flange, opening up a big hole for gas to start spewing all over me. So I have my finger over the hole, now what? AH...
