Default Electrical Gauges

i just got an aftermarket electrical gauge set with electrical oil pressure and water temp

i believe i found the oil pressure unit, its twards the front of the car by the oil filter right? so i just unscrew that and install the new sensor that came with the gauge?

and i really have no idea on how to hook up the electrical temp gauge

any help would be appreciated

thanks,
Keith

Yes, and hooking up the temp gauge is the same as well.

yes on the oil pressure

for my water temp, i took out a plug at the rear drivers side of the lower intake and replaced it with the sensor... you can also use the stock hole, if you dont mind the stocker being dead...

is the factory oil pressure sensor like a 1" head?

my biggest deep well is 7/8 and that's too small
and there isn't enough room for a crescent wrench.
