911 gauge/sender matching...

Hello, I am making a custom gauge with some 911 VDO gauge parts and am trying to find the part number for the matching senders to the gauges I have. The two gauges in question are an oil pressure gauge from 0-5 Bar, and an oil temperature gauge with no scale. The oil temp gauge has a white outlined box for cold and a red filled box for hot. I believe these came from a '70-80s 911. I do not have the original gauge body so do not have the standard part number. I can give you the numbers stamped into the actual gauge electronics body.

Oil Pressure - 013056 9.80
Oil temp - 195198 9.80

Thank you for any help you may provide...

If you look carefully at the outside edge of the temperature gauge, you will see little tiny numbers. Those are the calibration marks, and they are in degrees C.

Allegedly, the VDO senders with the appropriate range (e.g., 5 Bar pressure sender) work correctly with the 911 gauge modules. I don't know this for a fact, but it is what I have been told.

OK, on the temp gauge the cold end says 60-90 deg and the red starts at 150 and has another higher mark at 170. What does that tell me?

If you go to the internet look under vdo. there will be vendors listed. call them with your info and they will tell you which sender goes with the guage. their prices are very good also, Ihat,s what I did and they work fine.

5 Bar gauge needs a 80psi sender.

Thanks for all the help! I love this board!!

I called VDO and confirmed that I need the 80PSI sender, which I think has 1/8"-27 NPT threads, part # 360 009. I need to confirm the thread on the temp sender, but if it's 1/8"-27 again the 250 deg sender is # 323 095.

170C is 340F. I don't think the 250F sender is the right one... I believe that the threaded bit in the stock sump plate is M14 threads, not NPT.

The pressure gauge sender will not fit where the pressure switch was without modifing the hole in the sheet metal. You can get a adaptor kit from Pelican to remote mount the sender.
