    just want to let everybody know about an awesome product I found that is a great little addition to any Dauntless V6…

    the 225 in my Rover was always a lacking a oil pressure gauge.. the area, especially with conversion motor mounts was a bit tight for a splitter and I believe firmly in keeping idiot lights..

    CJ Pony parts carries this oil pressure adapter.. guess it’s an issue in early Ford V8s,
    1/4” male extension (4” long) with a 1/8” Tap for a gauge.

    Ford used those for years on many different models.

    An 1/8" NPT nipple and tee works fine, if you don't have this special part. This part inspires more confidence, since it appears to support the components on the end of the lever arm better.

    So it looks like you have a sending unit, and an oil line leading off the adapter. Is the sender strictly to trigger a low oil pressure warning light?

    I have an adapter like that on my SBF 302 engine, but it only allows for a gauge sending unit, for an electric gauge.
