  • Finally installed Duke’s oil pressure gauge

    I won this at NW Starfest a couple of years ago. I was moderately embarrassed that I didn’t install it before last year’s event.

    But Roady has been feeling neglected while I’ve been focused on
    my Jeep build. So today was full maintenance day. Along with a full oil change, wash, polish, and detail - I decided to also install the gauge.

    I messed with it a bit before looking up Duke’s ​​​​​post from when installed his. He did a great job on the design. It’s a tight fit. Removing the shifter rod made it easier.

      I’ll blame that on Duke. I might be able to spin the gauge. I’ll look again when it’s not so damn hot.

      I’m recovering well. Rehab twice a week. Working less. Moving more.

      I’ll definitely be at Baker City! Wouldn’t miss it.

        I noticed it was upside down too…..must have been on purpose considering he’s been working on Jeep’s which tend to be upside down a lot…..gotta make sure the oil pressure is good with the wheels in the air…..​​​​​…….

                Has anyone installed an oil pressure switch with or without a gauge?

                  If you are talking about a gauge with an electric sending unit, yes I have and the gauge in installed in my faring. I also installed a oil temp gauge in the fairing. I installed the sending unit in the bottom of the oil tank in place of the drain plug.

                  That's pure genius. The oil pressure gauge is useful and cool looking but hard to monitor while riding. A gauge in the fairing is perfect. I don't have a fairing so I was thinking of a bright red light mounted to the handlebars and aimed at my head. It illuminates when I turn the key on and stays off while the engine is running as long as I have oil pressure. Oil temperature would be another useful condition to monitor. Can you give us some details?

                I understand the "jeep thing"...
                That's why I drive a Ford.
