VDO 80psi Oil Pressure Sending Unit, 1/8 -27 NPTF, Single Pole

VDO 80psi Oil Pressure Sending Unit, 1/8 -27 NPTF, Single Pole


 
VDO Single Pole Oil Pressure Sending Units are the preferred method of acquiring a pressure signal, in conjunction with your stock oil pressure warning light switch. The stock switch activates at 2.5psi, the 2-Pole VDO senders @ 8psi, which is too high!

Aircooled VW Engines usually have a hot idle anywhere from 1.5-7psi when properly built (Proper sized pump), and using the correct viscosity oil (10psi/1k RPM hot cruise). More pressure than this at cruise causes the stock oil cooler to be bypassed, and oil temps skyrocket. When you size the pump and oil viscosity properly, you should see hot idle between 1.5-7psi.

If you use a VDO 2-Pole Sending Unit, the idiot light is triggered at 8psi, and you will be constantly freaking out at hot idle wondering "what's wrong".

The solution is to use a VDO 1-Pole Sender with the STOCK Oil Light Switch, to get the use of your Oil Pressure Gauge, with the correct operation of the stock oil pressure switch activating your Warning Light.
