I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

mike i dont get home untill 4.50 ish most evenings so im assuming you knock off about the same time because when i reply you dont seem to get back to me untill next day mid afternoon when im not available.

HI again -

Thank you for your reply and info.

Yes as you say, we do keep missing each other... but its ok - you will get my replies / and mine, yours whenever we come back on.

The oil pressure switch is down the side of the engine where you say behind the oil filter location but Im afraid there is a great amount of stripping to do to even get at it..

I dont know if you are planning to fit an electrical type gauge or mechanical - but either way - you would "Plumb in " there - at the switch or behind it if mechanical.. but as above - Im afraid you would need to plan quite some time to even get at it -

Do let me know if you need anything else at all -

Kind Rgds - MIKE.

hi mike can you be more specific as you look at the engine from the front of the car is it on the left or right of the oil filter and can i get at it better from under the car . allso im not sure what pipes contain liquid ect can you point me in the right direction as you say there are lots of items to remove like can i remove enough items easily without removing the front grill/radiator etc.

chears mike.

why wont you reply to my last question is it because i need to pay again .

Hi again...

Im sorry - I was off yesterday...( well part of - ) You dont have to pay again no.. I wasn't ignoring you in any way..

Its kind of adjacent to / behind the oil cooler / filter area... Its difficult as I said before because its right down there ...

You would find it easier to go up from the underside - though you will have to remove the under tray... you wont have to remove the front of the car.

Have you bought a kit for it / what type of gauge are you fitting?

Rgds, MIKE...

hi mike im fitting a prosport electrical gauge halo premium series and a relocation kitfrom 42 draft designs .yes your right it is difficult to see that why i was asking the question because i can see the oil filter housing which screws off from the top and i can feel a cable wich seems to be going in towards the engine just at the rear of the filter housing but slightley to the right if you understand what i mean it feels like a single cable and i thought it might be that so if i remove the under tray will i be able to see it clearley and get at it with out having to remove loads of pipes etc.thanks

Hi again..

Just a courtesy reply - I note what you have said above.. Let me know how you get on - or if you have any other troubles...

Best Rgds, MIKE..
