Re: no oil pressure
I stopped using Teflon tape for these grounded senders, and started using a smear of white pipe dope. I make sure the stuff is inside the threads, and that the threads themselves are shiny, making for a good contact.
When I did use the Teflon, I only wrapped the lower quarter inch; to do this, I cut the half inch tape in half. This allowed for at least two or three of the upper threads of the sensor to be exposed, and to make for a clean contact.
Never argue with an idiot; they'll only drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.
