I have had 2 autometer sending units leak oil out the stud on top. An alternate would be great

Last weekend a buddy of mine autometer sending unit went out on his brand new subi motor. Though he toasted the motor, it only read 10psi. Picked up a new one from Joe Fab and installed it in the dunes, read 80 after that.

I just installed one last night I'll find out today if it's good to go

Racepak recommends mounting them rubber mounted remotely.

Mine has been fine. 8+ years. :dunno:UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_1b8a.thumb.jpg.cdfee9b215218b13f1955398c5446050.jpg

I just rearranged the way all the senders were. Now the temp is straight into the flow of the oil. 2 pressure sending units on the "T". 1 for a light and the other to the gauge.

Do you need a part #?

Only had the water temp gauge go bad so far! Fingers crossed!

This is what I’ve always done. Vibration kills them, and the adapter fittings/tees don’t fare too well either.

Had a manual autometer boost fail too. Got stuck around 12 pounds and would not drop below

I installed a new one seemed to fix it for now but yeah send me the numbers if you could and where did u get the t at? The one I have doesnt fit right so mines mounted sideways cause the sending hits the intake
