60 PSI oil pressure reading?
« on: April 23, 2012, 04:15:14 PM »
I recently changed my VDO oil pressure gauge to another VDO oil gauge (0-80 psi, same as before) and used a sender that came with yet another VDO gauge that I sent it back because it had spade connectors instead of terminal connectors, but kept the sender.  I used to always get a reading of 40 psi on average, and now this new combination is giving me a reading of 60psi?  Any thoughts on this?

When I called the seller he said as long as both are paired to handle a 0-80psi gauge it should work?  The only difference this year was that I did a lot of engine work this year, engine main seal, all seals in tranny, reflushed the head surface, etc, etc

Any experience on this matter would be appreciated!
