Oil Sending Unit Assistance
I changed my '86 El Camino dash over to factory gauges. According to Chevy, the oil sending unit for gauges is mounted just above the oil filter in that plugged hole in the block. The Chevy schematic shows a "bushing" between the unit and the block. Of course, Chevy discontinued the bushing. I'm also concerned because eventually I'll go to headers and the sending unit is going to be sticking straight out and in the way. Has anyone gotten around this problem? My original plan was to plumb from the normal hole back by the distributor, but the unit won't fit under the distributor. Does anyone have the bushing? Help!
