    Mine haven't flickered in 4 years. You have a bad connection in the sockets(s) or the connection(s).

    I think its time to raise the dead (thread) a little.

    I just did this mod over the weekend and I love the results, completely stock appearance, and now I get to see my engine's proverbial blood pressure!

    Though I must confess in the end I cheated, did like Wes showed, and just ring terminal-ed the oil sender.

    And secondly I kinda wish I saved my stocker for posterity and just bought an MM(fake) gauge over eBay, junkyard, or off a member, to operate on, cause its absolutely mutilated now.

    Oh and it was spot on that I practiced on the MM one first as you get to make all your mistakes, and you WILL make mistakes unless you're a pro, in which case you don't even need this do-entation.

    Thanks again,

    Just make sure you remove the sneedle pin and push back the framostat to get it out.

    J/K! You'll have a small amount of oil come out. Clean around the sender unit so you don't push any dirt into the hole. Just be ready to install the new one quick.

    Oh, and sorry to bring back a long dead thread....

    Are your pictures still available for the sending unit install? Does the current wire have to be cut to connect it to the sending unit?
