is there a differance (other then visually) in oil pressure senders between eb -ef
after installing an ef xr engine in my eb my oil pressure on the dash is sitting on the first mark ...
do i have low oil pressure or do i have the wrong sender for the dash?
thankyou 8-)

Dude, you need VDO part number: 360.013. You can get it from Repco or simular for about $60. That or swap the one off your old engine to your new engine. EF/EL senders have a different resistance range to the XD/ED ones.

Thanks,

Evan.

there are 2 types, the small one is a pressure switch for low series cluster with the oil light only.
the larger fat round one is the sender for mid and high series clusters with the oil pressure gauge..
