Oil pressure sending unit

Does anyone know an oil pressure sending unit that I can sub out instead of the factory one my second one is toast. I think an old style one off a 70's dodge would work but I can't compare resistance because mine is toast. Does anyone have any ideas or part numbers for something I can get at napa or a resistance spec?

I did think of that but I think it's just one more line that will get ripped off or leak.

check the ground wire on the back of your oil pressure gage, if it's like mine there is a small fiber washer and it shuld be removed, after I removed them from all my gages they all worked like new and have had no problems after that.

Also if you have removed the sending unit and reinstalled with Teflon tape, it most generally will not work. Remove the sending unit, remove the Teflon tape and reinstall with nothing on the treads.

I think the heat shielding may be a very necessary thing also, I added some shielding around my headers because the plastic deck had warped from the heat and I was worried about my shocks getting hot from the exhaust and I also made sure the original heat shield stayed put on my oil pressure sender unit.

No problem. My new cage configuration has no deck of which I have not had time to work on. Hoping this will get rid of the some of the heat in the engine compartment. BUT I have never heard ever that heat was an issue with a oil pressure sending unit in anything! Remember it is already exposed to the heat of the engine block & the oil in the vane to the sending unit. Maybe the wiring to the sending unit!

I grounded the sensing wire and the gauge went to zero from pinned so it's the sensor. I Dont think it enjoys being close to the exhaust.

So is your sender working now and it was just the ground wire or is it still dead? as I reread, you grounded the sensor wire, right? can you measure any resistance from sender out put to ground terminal or case? and ground terminal to case?

Just info for the next guy, but my oil pressure gauge also quick working out of the blue. After reading this post, I followed the advice given from Renegade and took off the red fibrous washers from the terminals on the back of the gauge (actually took off all 3) and it worked just fine again (until I ripped out out the wire from the connector due to a slip when plugging it back in :( ). Will get that connected back up and expect it will work just fine. Not really sure if it was just a bad connection or if those washers somehow cause problems, but it seems to be fixed now.

I over torqued mine and busted the terminal off, so I soldered a piece of wire to it and capped that end with silicone and use wire nuts, no problems since.

      I have a 2022 500 Hisun product, I have had them in the past. I change my oil myself and trying to drain through the hole where I remove the plug is a mess.  How does everyone keep the belly pan clean during the oil and filter service?

      Please help I have a Massimo 400 buck that has an oil leak. The oil is leaking on the front side of the motor. It leaks out of a u-shaped steel pipe that has two banjo style fittings on it. I have tried using RTV and different banjo washers and have had no luck. It drips about one drip per second while it's running. I can't find parts for it at this time.

      We own a 2020 Kubota RTV-XG-850, with only 400 hours on it and it has been at the dealer 3+ months. We were just informed our engine failed and requires a complete rebuild at only 400 hours! There is a loss of compression in cylinder #1, which is causing backfiring and a loss of power. There is also excess gas in the engine oil. 
      We are just outside of the manufacture's warranty period, and they are serving us a nearly $5000 repair bill, with only a 90 day warranty.

      A member at a different forum had the same issue at 22 hours and fortunately, his RTV is under warranty. He was informed that "short tripping" (as Kubota describes it) causes gasoline to enter into the engine oil, which causes a dilution of engine oil and eventually leads to catastrophic engine failure. This killed our engine in under 400 hours!

      Is anyone else with a 2018-2022 XG-850 running into similar issues?

      I've had a battery failure and need one replacement.  The local distributor told me it might take up to four weeks to get one.  I'd like to order one in sooner than that if possible.  Any help would be appreciated.

      I have a 2023 T-Boss 410. The starter is just spinning but nothing is turning over. It was working fine and just stalled. Tried to restart and starter just spins. Thought maybe the interior of the starter broke. Ordered and installed a new starter and it does the same thing. You just hear the starter spinning but does not seem like anything is catching. I checked the gear the starter engages and that is clean and turning freely. Any idea what the issue could be?
