    Oil blockoff

    hi guys,

    i am putting my engine back together,and i am putting a oil blockoff kit on it.it is a 02 virage by the way.my question is do i need to wire up the float in the oil tank to make it seem like it is full of oil.i have seen this on here before when adding a blockoff ,but i wasn't sure if i had to do it.it didn't say anything on the kit about doing it,so i wasn't sure.when taking the float out,it hits panel above it ,before coming out completely,or should i bend it and force out the float. thanks


    matt

    You can tie up the oil sender float to indicate oil full, or you can install a 33 ohm resistor in the electrical box to simulate a full condition.

    447... would i just pull the float out of the oil tank?when i have tried to pull the float out of the tank,there isn't enough clearance to get it out,should i just give it a little force and bend it out?

    Slide the oil tank forward or backwards until you can get the sender out. You may need to release the holding straps, which can be a challenge to re-install.

    If it was me, I would leave the oil sender alone, and just install the 33 ohm resistor in the electrical box. Not hard to do, reversible, and no messing around with the oil tank or sender.

    33 ohm resistor is available from Radio Shack. Crimp spade connectors on to the ends, slide some insulation over it, and plug it into the Blue and Black terminals.

    Unplug the Blue wire that runs to the oil sender, and that is it.

    OR use a hose clamp to keep float up. Worked for me.
