    Hi All, I'm new to the dauntless, want to do oil pressure check on cranking before start up, it hasn't been run in years but low miles and all is looking good. Any advice on the best location off the block where I might install my line, (and maybe eventually run a manual gauge to the dash from)?

    Thanks in advance for any experiences or info!

    There is a port right above where the filter goes. On the passenger side of the engine. It should be where the mechanical oil pressure meter is hooked up to.

    Funny thing is I just bought a Wix filter to use on my next oil change. They seem to get good reviews. The Napa was on there when I bought it in June.
