There is a 1/8"npt port on the back rail of the block near the distributor hole.

If it is vacuum a gauge oil filter. You have to buy a 3/8 pipe t fitting to fit the block and install both the sensor and the gauge tube on. Key on power wire to light it up.

Connect the wiring harness to the back of your oil pressure gauge. Secure the oil pressure gauge with the retaining screws.

Screw out the oil sending unit. Put a "tee" back into the hole. Screw in the oil sending unit for the light AND the fitting for the mechanical oil gauge.

There is a special adapter that is needed, you remove the fuel line to the fuel rail, install the special adapter and then install the fuel pressure gauge to the adapter and reinstall the fuel line to the adapter.

Do you mean an oil pressure gauge? Not tach?

It is most likely the oil pressure sensor, located on the front of the engine block near the oil filter. There is also a slim possibility that the gauge in the instrument cluster is defective.

"T" into the existing oil pressure gauge with brass pipe fittings. This way you will have the original oil pressure gauge and the mechanical oil pressure gauge. Don't forget to use thread sealer.

you can buy the gauge at any auto store or even walmart and there are directions with the gauge.

Assuming you mean the pressure sender it is a pipe thread into the block, some teflon tape will help it seal. There is no gasket. The oil filter has an "O" ring on it that seals it to the block.

You tap in off the stock oil pressure sender with a T fitting.

Take the wire loose from the oil sending unit and then turn the key on and ground the wire to the engine somewhere and the gauge in the truck should go all the way past the highest point. If it don't then the gauge in the dash is bad are the wire going to it ( The 1 you grounded ) is broken. If the gauge is reading low oil pressure, Then unscreew the oil sending unit on the engine just behind the distributor, were you took the wire loose from. Then install a OIL PRESSURE GAUGE into it's place. Then start the engine and read the pressure, Now compare the reading on the dash gauge to what you are reading on the oil gauge.

get a oil pressure gauge from the auto store and install it under your dash or where ever you find a place to install it and read the directions on how to install it.

Install a manual gauge to check actual pressure or try Replacing oil sending unit

A pressure gauge indicates actual pressure and a differential pressure gauge indicates the difference in pressure.

You will need to remove your oil pressure sending unit and install a mechanical gauge to get a true reading. You need to start out cold and write down the pressure reading and also once it warms up to operating temperature. If the pressure gauge is not the same as the mechanical one you have a bad pressure switch.
