Mine's gone to a better place! Need to replace it, common problem I hear, I've seen posts with pics and instructions saying anywhere from 45 mins, to about 2 hrs to replace... anybody have direct hands on experience having done it? How long did it take? Likely putting it away soon, guess I'll put it on the "to do" list for winter projects...

$50 + the sender!? That is a great price Manny. I was quoted $360 + the cost of the sender to have mine replaced. I found a brass housed sender at Part Source for under $70, so I am not too sure where the other $310 came from....tax?

So, made the trip to Manny's for my oil pressure sender, he slapped it on in about 40 mins! :eek: and that included having the obligitory Horton's coffee he makes me bring him whenever I stop in! I mentioned I was thinking about buying a set of stainless brake lines advertised on special elsewhere, and what did he think of that mod, turns out he had them in stock as well, even better price, so I figured what the heck, while I was there I may as well have him stick them on too even though I planned on it for my own "some afternoon" project.... took him a bit longer for those, about an hour, but there was a beverage break included, as visitors stopped by....
It's a great mod BTW, you'll notice the improvement 1st time you step on the brakes....
Thanks Manny! always the best service and quality of workmanship and pricing! It's worth the drive to Cambridge!
