Hi all,

Can I ask If the diameter of the gauge is it 52mm? Secondly how is it held in, does it have the clamp across the back and if so whats the best way in?

I have very low oil pressure which changes thinking voltage issue or rather hoping! so changing to capillary with crossed fingers .

Interceptor mk11.

Max.. It just pulls out, no clamps on it, it can be tight thoughImage, I use a small suction puller on the glass to remove them :wink:
Why not change the sender instead, but before you do that you should put a mechanical gauge on where the sender is, the sender is situated on the back of the block by the bulkhead where the bellhousing is, it can be a bit fiddly but being a 383 it is easier than a 440Image
