Oil Pressure Guage?

I just bought a triple guage kit I'm going to install on the cat. I was just wondering if any of you guys know where I can get the oil pressure guage adapter that goes in-line on the oil cooler supply that has the attachment for the sending unit, looks like a t-fitting? Thanks again!

daryle TN,i got mine at utv inc. i got my oil sending unit and my water temp sending unit and my gauges through them. note:my 06 prowler has 3/8 oil lines my sending unit i got was set up for 1/2 lines.i called them back and they said they didnt make one for 3/8 lines,but i made it work.note:your high pressure side will be double clamped. they might make one now,and your lines might be 1/2 inch since yours is newer.

I appreciate the feedback guys.. de3 I looked at that one at UTV inc and will have to think about it. I ordered a couple things from them in the past and it wasn't the best experience. I found an older thread where NEWTOTHIS did the same thing. Here's the pic of where he tapped into the line going to the oil cooler... but I have no idea how he came up with this fitting. Not sure if it was bought or assembled..

looks like a 3/8" female tee, with two threaded male barbed adapters, and the fittings that come with youre gauge setup, all these things can be aquired from youre local hardware store for under 10.00$, some teflon tape and youre done.

you can go different routes,i remember that post i think he had a mech gauge.if you do as he did you would have only 10 to 15 dollars in it.i take it some of you guys didnt have very good service with utv inc. thats the only thing i had ever gotten from them.

this way is fine but ive seen some bad things happen with the nylon hose to the gauges . they leak , break and become brittle over time . i went with a electronic pressure gauge same as on a old chevy . the mushroom shaped one. a single wire to the gauge. no plastic lines to worry about . i tied into the pressure line of the oil cooler outlet with a brass 1/4'' tee and 2 3/8'' hose barbs .works great. , dont use teflon tape that stuff is the devil! ive seen way too many hydraulic valves plugged with that stuff ! best to use teflon PASTE .

Soazcat.. don't mean to be a pest but I'm no sure what guage you are refering to. By any chance do you have a link or some info on the guage you used? Something I can google? I appreciate the info already! Thanks Daryle
