TO INSTALL OIL PRESSURE, WATER TEMP, AND VOLT METER ? WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO DO THIS ? IS IT TO REMOVE FACTORY SENDER FROM THE HOLE AND PUT IN A DOUBLE HOLE BRASS FITTING TO HOLD BOTH SENDERS OR IS THERE A BETTER WAY THAT TAKES LESS ROOM?? PLEASE GIVE FEED BACK. THESE GAUGES ARE AUTOMETER ELECTRONIC. THANKS FOR ALL THE HELP!!!!!!!!!

First - Welcome. Typing in all caps MEANS YOU ARE YELLING AT PEOPLE.

Water Temp - I have found the best solution for a 3.8 block is to buy an 1/8th" sender and put in place of the drain plug on the side of the block. This way you don't need to mess with 'T's and junctions. Most aftermarket water temp gauges come with a 1/4" sender and I have never used that one. Napa sells the different senders for the different gauges. 1/8th.

Oil Pressure - Here you will want to use a 'T' if you want to retain your oil pressure warning sensor. Remove oil pressure warning sensor, install small extension and 'T'. Then install both the aftermarket oil pressure sending unit and the factory oil pressure warning sensor.

Volt Meter - For what? Everyone should have somoe sort of scan tool for these cars (ScanMaster, TurboLink, Direct Scan ect) and these will all show your volts. Don't really need a gauge for it. Don't skip the scantool.

Hope that helps.
