Bzzzt! Wade is correct- only early B's (63-67) Have a mechanical oil guage.
The 68 and up have a oil line going to an electrical sending unit, which is
mounted on the fire wall near the heater. The 68-71 sender is highly prone
to failure, and are expensive. (ie: Vicky brit- 149.00 !)
72-80 used a much cheaper switch- (10.95), which may not be compatible with
the 68-71 guage. Scott?
Or, the guage for the 72-76 may fit the 68-71- I'm not sure tho.
