I have just finished rebuilding the Perkins 4.108 engine
on a 41 foot 1973 Formosa
boat and have a question about the oil
sender unit before I start the engine
for the first time.
My boat has an oil
pressure gauge in the dash which I have wired to the oil presuure sender unit just besides the starter motor
. It's about 2 inches in diameter.
In front of that going towards the oil filter
there is another sender unit about 1 inch in diamater which I'm not sure what it is. I'm assuming it's a sender unit for an oil lamp
. There is no provision in the dash for an oil lamp
I traced one of the wires and it just stops in the loom unconnected.
Does anyone know if it is for an oil light.
If it is then I'll just buy a dashboard lamp and wire it up.
Did these boats have an oil lamp and an oil gauge?
Any help is appreciated.
