Just got done with this on my '79 bu. Here's the route I went...
Sender - Autometer 2259
Adapter - Autometer 2277
I just used the original location for the sensor that was on the driver side head.
Sender - Autometer 2241
Adapter - Autometer 2268
I just took out the stock oil sending unit and used the adapter with the sending unit.
I believe some just drill and tap the stock unit to the proper size for the new sender so there's another option. Hopefully going to fire her up for the first time this weekend so I guess I'll see how these gauges work out...
