I just installed an auto meter elec oil pressure gauge and the thing is pegging out at 100. Is there anyway to test the sending unit to see if it is ok? Any suggestion on what else I should try?

I don't know how you can test that gauge. But if you can borrow a mechanical test gauge you can compare what it says your oil pressure is to the electric unit.

Be sure the meter is properly grounded,or it will as you see
"peg out".
