hopefully thats all it is
if there aint no knocking, clattering, tapping, look around your stuff for a guage even a water or pump or boiler guage would work
just get some reducers to screw it in the sending unit opening and start it up and rev the engine and do a visual on the guage
this will help you to sleep good at night

you could even use a hose with hose clamps one end to the guage and the other to a nipple in the block make it long enough to hold up high
something you could also use in the future

I know there are all sorts of gauges around the garage and shop. I will take a gander when I get home.
How should I hook it up to the block though since the stock sender is essentially a 6psi switch?

Well new findings. Kind of.
It seems to drop off with no rhyme or reason, just random. Except at free revs it does every time. Driving around it will randomly drop off, sometimes pulling a hill it will sometimes it won't. I can run it to 4g and shift and sometimes nothing sometimes it goes nuts. Holding third downhill it slowly dropped off, but never went below N, then running up the next hill it went crazy and then stop sign pulling first it dropped to nothing, clutch in it went back up, second gear back to nothing. Sooo confused.
And It does throw a cel when down to zero.

Disaster averted. Cleaned the sender tip and boot on the wire, went for a cruise and all is well. Didn't move off the R.
It is about time for a real gauge though..
And I'm relieved, yet sort of sad I don't have something fun to work on.

Thank god for that.
So if I get a real gauge, it will remain electric with the pre 86 sender correct?
I don't want a mechanical gauge with hot oil running into the cab.

Correct, buy sender (comes with teflon tape on the threads already), unplug\unscrew switch (might need a pair of plyers to get it to unscrew), screw new sender in it's place (tighten with wrench at the base of the new sender, nothing to tight though, just so it doesn't leak), then pull the gauge cluster and bypass resistor, etc.

Here's a pic of the sender, us V8 guys have to extend some plumbing out to make it fit, but for the 4.9l, it's a simple "take this one off put this one on" technique.

vs. stock:

They don't show it here, but when we bought it there was teflon tape on the threads already. Just remember to tell them you have a 1986 truck instead of a 1990.

sleep good tonight Russo
also a socket somewhere around an 1" will fit over the switch; like the one in the second pic above

I kinda had the same feeling today, the weathers been so Spring like I took the Electra Glide out for a cruise; some distance from the house it started to cut out, I think oh crap
reached down and switched to the reserve tank and all was well; I thoudht I had at least 3 gallons in the tank
next time Ill take a look see

I fink I fink, I'm gonna get me some gauges.
I gotta use that money at CP and I feel like their ujoint prices will be ridonk so I'm gonna get me some cheap gauges.
Oil pressure, Volts, water temp.
I'd like a vacuum and some others, but I need the first three more than others.
Also, what would I need to do the T so I can run both gauges? Will they both be accurate if they are coming off the same sender?
