Thanks for the answers. Lots of good info as usual!

But maybe I don't need the oli pressure warning light, since I have the oil pressure safety switch for the fuel pump? What do you think?

To make any sence, the warning light must get on by a little higher pressure than the fuel pump safety switch will shut off the pump, right?

The safety switch I have bought will shut down the pump by an oil pressure below 7 psi.
The warning light kit i might buy have a 20 psi sending unit. Forgive me for this stupid question, but is this for warning the driver about too high oil pressure, or too low...?

The engine is a close to standard 350 small block chevy, by the way.
