Low Down on Oil Pressure Sending Unit Extensions


Oil Pressure Sending Unit Extension Can Be Lifesaver

Passing along helpful information to fellow Ford Mustang enthusiasts is one of the favorite parts of our job. Sometimes, it’s the little things that can assist someone in solving a problem that may seem simple to some but difficult to others. One of those helpful hints is our Dual Port Oil Pressure Sending Unit Extension for 1964-1995 V8 engines (DM #70527).

Dual Port Oil Pressure Sending Unit ExtensionCool Features

This little metal part can be a real lifesaver for those needing the following:

Easier access and extra clearance to their oil sending unit port for the purpose of reducing busted knuckles while working with the oil sending unit or for cleaning up wire or sensor tube routing.
An extra port to supplement the factory OE dash warning light (aka “idiot light”) with a high-quality aftermarket mechanical or electric gauge as this part allows the use of both OE and after-installed connections simultaneously.
An extra port take-off for applications requiring an additional pressurized oil supply such as forced induction systems that need a feed line to cool and lubricate the main system (ie superchargers and turbochargers).


High quality machined metal hex extension with a zinc plated finish to resist corrosion. It is precision tapped auxiliary ⅛” NPT fitting. Installs easily into the stock engine block port location allowing the OE sending unit to remain in use. Note: For extra protection against leaks, always use teflon tape before screwing the extension into the block and on any sending unit threads.

Just Need An Extension?

If you don’t need the extra oil port but do like the idea of an extended port for ease of access, try our Oil Pressure Sending Unit Extension for 1964-1995 V8 engines (DM #2491). Same benefits as the Dual Port extension without the extra auxiliary port.

About Tim Worlitz

I started working on cars when I was 13 years old and have spent the last 35 years in the automotive industry. After graduating from San Gorgonio High School in San Bernardino, CA, I was able to attend San Bernardino Valley College, Cal Poly Pomona, and USC earning Associate of Science, Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering, and Master of Science in Systems Engineering Degrees. I have been fortunate to work in the OEM, OES, Aftermarket, and SEMA automotive segments focused primarily in design engineering, manufacturing, and operations management. I started my professional career at the Subaru of America Tech Center involved in HVAC, Cruise Control, and Accessory Development which allowed me to spend time working with engine and chassis dynometers, data acquisition in lab and field environments cold weather testing in places like International Falls, MN @-40F, hot weather testing in Death Valley, CA @+122F, and conducting vehicle test data acquisition for HVAC and NVH on various closed circuit test tracks in Arizona. While at Subaru I was driver and one of several team engineers involved in setting two Bonneville land speed records in I/Pro class at the 1988 & 1989 Speed Weeks...a record that still stands today. From Subaru, I went on to work stints as Director of Engineering at Thermal Dynamics and Fluidyne Racing Products, Director of Engineering at Wynn's Climate Systems, and General Manager at Standard Motor Products / Four Seasons Mfg Division with operations in US and Mexico. Seeking to exit the rigors of international travel and corporate politics, I became President of Tuskerstone, Inc dBA Dallas Mustang Parts & Accessories in 2015. I am a member of SAE, ASME, & ASQ professional organizations as well as Tau Beta Pi & Pi Tau Sigma national engineering honor societies.
