Part identification - What is this (solenoid?)...


Recommended Posts

And why don't I have one?

 

I picked up a used Weber and manifold on CL and snapped this pic of the guy's engine bay.  What is that unit next to the distributor?  I've seen these on a couple other cars online.  Why don't I have one?  haha

Yep--VDO oil pressure sender unit--one terminal goes to the gauge while the other one operates the oil pressure warning light.  On the VDO sender, the warning light comes on at 14.7 psi (1 atmos) vs the factory sender of 7 psi (.5 atmos).

Hey Mike, I had never heard of the higher psi warning light and looked into it. there are 2 different senders from vdo, one with 7 psi (30/2) one with a 12 psi light (30/4)

Ratings are stamped on the wrenching flats of the sender.
