Default help wiring my glow shift cluster?

i just picked up this glow shift cluster from a buddy and tossed it into my car, he tore it out before i could say wait and now we have no clue where anything went or goes. i have everything powered from the clock power/switch so they work and the boost gauge works but now i need to tackle the oil pressure and oil temperature. he claimed all 3 gauges worked perfectly when he pulled them out but i cant see any differences in the oil sensor below the alternator and there is no sandwich plate? oil temperature is sitting at 0 and oil pressure is sitting at 100, although there is NOTHING hooked up but power and ground. any help is appreciated! one thing i do know is the wires were routed right behind the radiator fan on passenger side. but none were hooked up to anything

i guess if i had some direction to where the sensors on his car might have been, i can pull them out and wire mine up and have a great working gauge

Sounds like you don't have the sensors hooked up properly. The one gauge that reads 100 is probably only hooked up to power and not to the sensor

that's correct, but where is the correct sensor which I should be tapping into? I'm looking for oil pressure and oil temp sensors. i would then just split off of those wires from the sensor correct?

The oil temp sensor(depending on the brand) may actaully replace the drain plug. I'm not sure about the pressure sensor

You can't use the factory sensors, there are none. You need the sensors/sending units for those specific gauges.

that would mean replace with a new capable sensor in its place? I don't have to drill/tap any holes right?

Have you even tried using Google or looking on Prosports site? There is an oil galley plug on top of the block,under the TMIC that everyone and their mother uses to install in an oil pressure/temp sender.

Oil pressure and temp have nothing to do with Engine Management. There is a reason NASIOC has a "Newbie" section...........
