MAYBE

SOME DAY

DO NOT WANT (decided against after researching)

  • none

ORDERED (and waiting for delivery)

  • none

IN HAND (but have not installed yet)

  • magnetic oil pan plug
  • back-up alarm
    • need to run lots of wire to it

INSTALLED

  • bigger tires (Need load range "D") (went with Goodyear Wrangler MT/R)
  • fuel pressure gauge
    • Autometer 2661 ~ $200. + Extra sender (2246?)
    • Westach
      • Resistive (moving parts in sender) = $161.20
        • 2C8-8 (2" 0-16psi electrical gauge) $52 x 1 = $52
        • 387-16V (pressure sender) $52 x 2 = $104
        • 186 (lighting kit) $5.20x1 = $5.20
      • Transducive (no moving parts in sender) = $311.20
        • 2C8-8KV (2" 0-16psi electrical gauge) $104 x 1 = $104
        • 387-16KV (pressure sender) $101 x 2 = $202
        • 186 (lighting kit) $5.20 x1 = $5.20
        • Transducive sensor is a kavlico sensor (P165) which
          according to the spec sheet has a 10ms response time, so I'll start by switching both the supply and the reading lines. That way I feel better about not
          drawing too much current from the gauge (two sensors on a single gauge...)
          • Need male 1/8" NPT to male barb for line, and male barb to female 1/8"

          • Need mount for senders
          • use anti-sieze for the joints

            Transducive failed after 6 months. Bought Resistive, and installed it instead.
