Autolite gauge question

I'm considering the Autolite electric oil pressure and electric water temp gauges, is there anyway to wire it up where my factory gauges still read in order to keep my oil light or check engine light from coming on since it'll think the thermostat is stuck open?

Yes, If you can find another port to connect the new gauges to.


The oil pressure is easy, you just put a T fitting and nipple in the factory sending unit connection.
The temperature gauge probe may be a bit harder to find a port for as it needs unobstructed access to the coolant. Sometimes there is a port on top of the thermostat housing that can be used if the probe is not too long.
