oil and water pressure switch location
« on: June 19, 2020, 10:30:06 AM »
Just had my new rebuilt engine installed in my 76 wagon. I'm doing the finishing work on it and can't find any info on the correct location of the oil/water sending units. My problem is I have a location at the bottom of the block and one at the top of the block, but I also have a threaded hole at the back of the cylinder head on the intake side? any help would be thankful.
