    Do replace the oil pressure sensor on my 84 K5? I know I have to remove the dist.cap. There is a nut on the bottom and top on the sensor. What size wrench do I need or is it a special tool time? Can I damage the new sensor by overtightening it? Thanks in advance /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    The oil pressure sender was pretty easy. Throw some thread tape on the threads and spin it in. I could barely manage to fit a wrench in there but I got the sender pretty tight.

    I don't know if there's a special tool available to make the job easier......
