On the 3fe it is located on the housing the oil filter screws into. Has a rubber cap over it , slide it off and there should e one wire connected to it . Filter is gonna drain when you remove the unit so be prepares or do at oil change.

It is on the right side of the engine, about halfway down in the middle. Should have two wires going to it, one for the oil light and one for the gauge. It is around 1.5 inches in diameter.

What should the oil pressure be on the cars guage


around 10-15 psi at idle and around 40-50 psi at 2000 rpms viscosity of the oil in use and the oil temperature will have a variance on the pressures so if it is too low , the first thing to do is to up the viscosity of the oil in use
upper pressure is governed by the pressure relief valve in the pump or oil galley
check with a mechanical gauge it the gauge has an electronic sender as the sender may be reading low on the pressure gauge

Low oil pressure reading


check that the oil level is not over the mark as this causes foaming of the oil and loss of pressure. At 80km/hr you will be doing around 3 grand and that will be enough to whip the excess oil into froth.. Too much oil is worse than too little oil.

Fuel sender unit ohms on a 1991 80series landcrusier


Early FJs had a fuel sender with an ohm range of 2.1ohms when full, to 4.5 when half full, to 6.5ohms when empty. Some may range from 33-240 ohms. You should use a VOM (ohm-meter setting) to measure this resistance value at full, empty and half-full positions. Then you will know what gauge to purchase!!! Hope this helps, thanks for using Fixya.com to help solve your issue. Tater Todd
