Anyone know of a "common" oil pressure sending unit that interchanges? I'm going to look at a car and they said the pressure gauge is "IN-OP".

Any other field testing methods ?

101 Giulias used mechanical oil pressure gauges, so the car wouldn't have a sending unit.

The gauges themselves are pretty reliable. However, the flex hose from the engine tends to break - they become brittle after exposure to heat from the exhaust manifold. So if the oil pressure gauge isn't working, check first if the feed line has just been blocked off.

I suppose that the 1600 could be a Spider junior or GT junior in which case it might have an electrical oil pressure gauge.

I contributed to an active thread concerning use of a modern Bosch sender with an older Alfa gauge.

Good point and it could also be at the gauge it self.

Anyone know what size the fitting is from the block. I've got some old SW gauges from my Hot Rod.

Thanks

Yea, I thought of that too. But Somer posted this in the "Giulietta & Giulia (1954-65)" section, so I assume that's what he has.

Nonetheless, some more information would have been useful; stuff like clarifying the year/model of Alfa, whether it's a Jaeger or Veglia gauge, how the gauge does behave, ....
