Alternate oil pressure port?

I want to run a mechanical oil pressure gauge, but not disable the stock gauge. Don't want a dead gauge in the cluster. With the wire and plug being pretty short and the oil filter being there, I would prefer not to put a T at the stock location. Is there another location that I can pick up oil pressure on a 97 4.0? Stock unit goes crazy on occasion, but verified pressure with mech gauge. That is the reason I want a mechanical.

Re: Alternate oil pressure port?

Not that I'm aware of.

Search for pics of a full mech cluster, easy to do with the '97 cluster arrangement.

Otherwise.......go to the JY or get an aftermarket oil filter adapter, drill and tap for 1/8npt on the pressure side............enjoy your new gauge.
