oil pressure switch plug
« on: April 28, 2014, 01:27:15 AM »
I have a 1969 Z28 with the 302 motor, my plug on my oil pressuse switch is wore out, it is the original plug and I wanted to ask the crg members where I should look for a plug. I want to replace it with an original part.

I'm assuming you mean the terminal on the end.  I know you don't need the insulation, but here is one way you can go.  Just replace the terminal on the end.  You can just push or pull the brass terminal out of the plastic shield(plug), snip off the old terminal, strip off a little of the coating, and crimp on the new terminal. You will probably even be able to use the original shield(plug) if you're careful enough.  If not, theres a new one in this kit.  I don't know anywhere (off hand) that you can get just the brass terminal.  Hope this helps.

Z/28's don't have an oil pressure switch; where is the switch you're talking about?

Possibly referencing a non gauge equipped Z, with idiot light sender switch.

Oops! Good catch - I've had mine so long (with gauges) I didn't consider the standard no-gauge configuration.  :-(

That's the switch but mine has a male end for the wire and doesn't have the spade (flat) end.
