In Topic: External Oil Filter not circulating/Oil P. Light on and off with RPM

I'll admit my 521 is my first datsun, and the first car with a carburator .. and without gauges i wouldn't be able to tell you one way or another how to tune it , if my fuel pressure was right or wrong.or if it was running rich or lean or anything else...
As a noob I probably went over kill on the gauge but they have all given me valuable information...
Even if they are installed temporarily as a systems check you can't go wrong...
Knowledge is power....

Information that's all it's about... like racerx said.. just because the red light went out doesn't mean you have 50 or 60 psi of oil pressure... same with fuel... suppose to be 3.5 but how do you know..
Without a gauge your only guessing....

Besides oil pressure gauge, voltmeter and temp. Gauge is a must for old skool cars

Fuel pressure doesn't hurt...
Air/fuel is nice to have too...

Yeh, but could be very low, that's why I said to install an oil gauge


Very true...
Even if its temporary just to verify psi... can't hurt.
Personally I like gauges, I like knowing what everything is up to instead of guessing....
