    Is that moving with throttle/rpm movement?

    Nah dan, I dont think it is rpm.

    I would check the wiring first. perhaps the pressure sensor has had it?

    No that's cruising, doesn't make a difference if I change the rpm.

    I made an adaptor that would take both the original sensor and the gauges sensor and would fit into the original sensor hole. I have just noticed a bit of oil around the sensors so there may be a small leak.
