    My oil pressure sender started leaking this weekend, and I went and bought a replacement. The pressure sender that I purchased was a 60 PSI sender, and the orginal sender from the truck was an 80 PSI. The gauge in my blazer (350 tbi) only goes up to 60 PSI....What sender is suppose to be in there? Thanks!!

    If the gauge reads to 60, it needs a 60 PSI sender. 80 PSI was (AFAIK, and all I have seen) Diesel only trucks. (and the gauge reads 80 as well)

    Get rid of it and get mechanical gauges, you'll be way ahead.
