Engine oil pressure \"tap\" points, SBC Just kinda screwing around with ideas in my head as I get closer and closer to finishing my motor. Since I've got to run an oil pressure switch and a gauge sending unit, what if I can't "t" them at the stock location next to the distributor? Been looking in wrecking yards, and noticed that 80's TBI vans (at least some) have the oil pressure sender above the oil filter. There is also the plug at the front of the block, behind the water pump. I dont have any oil flow diagrams handy, so I'm not sure of the flow from oil pump onwards. I'm guessing that the one next to the dist is "closest" to the pump, the one on the front of the block second, and the one above the oil filter last. But I really have no clue. The best situation is to have the oil pressure switch see 5PSI as fast as possible, while the sender doesn't really matter, as IMO, that gauge is relative: if it's 30 psi all the time then goes to 0, you have a problem, regardless if it was ever *really* 30psi, as long as it was reading consistently. Anyways, realistically, having the sender and switch at the same place next to the distributor is ideal (wiring length, ease) but I'm just trying to come up with the best option in case they both won't fit there. It's not too much of a stretch to the location above the oil filter, but I haven't checked clearance in that location either.
