Today, after routing the sender wire from the oil pressure relief valve location to the gauge (and a very nice job it was too), I took the bus on a drive, about 45 minutes worth. It was 94F, I idled it long, I drove around town, I drove fast up the canyon road, drove on the highway to 65mph for a while, drove back into town and idled some more on my driveway. Never got hotter (according to the gauge) than this ^^^

Now, I understand the accuracy of these can be a little wobbly, but I am very happy to know that it works, and seeing as this is a precautionary measure, I'm pleased with this little project.

I also changed the dashboard bulbs and cleaned up those tiny little grounds on the bulb holders. I now have a fully working dashboard. Nice.
