    Oil Temp Gauge

    Hi all, Bought my Westy in Sep last year and little done to it. However, booked onto first track day at Castle Coombe for 29 April and having read a few threads on here want to be sure I’m set up ok. I have a Scholar Racing lowline baffled sumo fitted but have heard that track days can kill wet sump cars? Is this the same for lowline baffled sumps? I would like to fit an oil temp sensor and gauge so was thinking of one of these in the sump plug (with adaptor) And then a suitable gauge. I have the following Westfield Gauges and just wondered if anyone knows if or where I could get an oil temp gauge to match? Cheers

    Whats the best Dash Set Up?

    Hi, I'm Just planning ahead for some potential winter projects and would appreciate some advice on dashboards The car looks like it on its 2nd dash with the one fitted now being a black acrylic type fitted with conventional clocks and gauges. It all looks a bit tired and flimsy so I'm going to make a new dash panel, but would like advice on the best way to go with the instruments - digital dashes or conventional clocks? Pro's and cons for both, costs and ease of set up is what i'm after I'm also interested the innovative and unusual designs and would like to hear and see what switch gear and indicator light set ups people use Thanks

  5. As some of you may know, my Westy died en route to the monthly meet last Thursday. The battery was fine (hazards worked) but there was no live feed to the ignition barrel. RAC got me going with a temporary wire bypassing some of my (ahem) loom. I found time yesterday to investigate and once I got behind the dash it turns out that the problem was really, really, simple to rectify. One of the wires going to the amp gauge had fallen off and connecting it back up completed the circuit providing power to the ignition barrel. I'm still learning about car electrics but it doesn't seem right to me that a wire falling off a gauge should stop the vehicle from working (I'd have expected it to just mean that the gauge stops working). Or am I being too simplistic? So I have spent some time searching the web learning more about how this gauge should be wired. Firstly, I have learnt a new word; the gauge is called an ammeter. It looks exactly like this product available from Holden: Mine also is a 60 amp version (not the 30 amp) but without the SMITHS logo but is otherwise identical. I then watched Holden's short video on Smiths classic 52mm voltmeter and ammeter gauges: It seems that ammeters are inappropriate for vehicles with alternators (or at least serve no real purpose) so I am now questioning the benefit of fitting it at all. I haven't really paid any attention to reading the gauge in the past as all it seems to do is flick a little bit whenever I have my indicators on. Any recommendations on how to proceed? My options appear to be: Do nothing (well maybe just tidy up the wiring as its a bit short at the moment which is why it fell off). Leave the gauge in the dash but rewire so that a loose cable falling off doesn't kill the car at 3500 RPM on the dual carriageway! I was lucky this time, might not be so lucky next. Leave the gauge in the dash (as I don't want a 52mm hole in the dash) but rewire without the gauge being connected as it is neither use nor ornament Replace the gauge with a voltmeter as at least thats more interesting to read and is better than just a red battery light. Something else Thanks in advance P.S. This might be the start of a number of wiring relating questions as I can see me no longer being able to ignore all the mess of wires under the dash.
  6. Can anyone recommend an alternative to the standard Westfield dashboard gauges to fit the flat dash. The Westfield ones are quite pricey so I may consider an alternative. They need to match though, and that seems to be a problem finding speedo and tachometer that match the 52mm gauges.
