OUR ONLINE CHECKOUT is CLOSED and we are NOT accepting any NEW orders at this time.

We are still fulfilling and shipping previously submitted and/or delayed order requests (as product availability allows) UNTIL NOVEMBER 15th 2022.

But after November 15th, all still pending backordered unshipped items will be automatically CANCELLED **(except for any special ordered drop-shipped or made/machined-to-order items).

Our ability to respond to emails is greatly hampered by being under-staffed during this downsize transition time. But we continue to endeavor to answer email inquiries as best we can. And we will continue responding to emails through until early March 2023 because we are wholly committed to resolving any other issues that may arise from previous sales. It is still UNCERTAIN, but we may re-open a substantially downsized version of our store again in the Spring of 2023.

We sincerely appreciate your patience, understanding during this period of restructuring and/or closing. And a huge thank you to all of you whose support and loyalty we have been the beneficiary of over the 23 years that we have worked diligently to support the information and parts needs of the aircooled VW community!

VDO 80psi Oil Pressure Sending Unit, 1/8-27 NPTF, Dual Pole (7psi Switch)

VDO 80psi Oil Pressure Sending Unit, 1/8-27 NPTF, Dual Pole (7psi Switch)


 
We don't feel that the VDO 80psi Oil Pressure, 1/8-27 NPTF, Dual Pole Sending Unit is the "right" sender to use for aircooled VW Engines because the oil light comes on at too high a pressure. Stock is 2psi, this comes on at 7-8psi.

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.

Regardless, we are offering this for you enthusiasts that want a high warning light pressure instead of the 2psi stocker.
