piggybacking on this dead thread.

where is the best place to tap in my new oil pressure test gauge on an amc 401? i figure i can pull the oil pressure sensor and hit it there but is there a spot on the top of the engine i can use so i don't have to lay down in the 4 quarts that blew past my filter gasket on Friday?

My stock 74' 258 runs at 20 psi at idle and 40 running down the road......


Good enough I guess.



What would it hurt to run 80 psi? I didn't think 80 psi was a bad thing necessarily.

"Piggybacking" is a hijack. Better to start a new thread with an appropriate title. No reason not to start a new thread. You'll get more responses, and in the future, users can better search for the answers to your question.
