My oil pressure on my car is dead and i have an extra gauge cluster left. Can I just swap the oil pressure gauge into it? Will that work, if so what do i have to exchange with the broken one?

Yes you can just swap in a working oil pressure gauge, just make sure the connections are correct.

Check and make sure it is plugged in to the oil pressure sensor in the block.

the plug on the sending unit sucks, it gets knocked loose on my car all the time. much more likely that than the gauge.

The help chevyeater gave me:
chevyeater said:
The easiest test for the guage and wiring is to remove the plug from the sender, turn the key on and check the guage, it should be all the way down. Then, ground the wire and check the guage again, it should be all the way up. If it works like this, replace the sender. If it doesn't work like this, either the guage or wire needs repair.
I tested my gauge. When grounded, the needle would go all the way to the top. When I removed the ground it would very slowly fall back to zero. Hit it with ground again and it would go all the way to the top. It wasn't instantaneous but it was quick. Remove ground and slowly it would travel back to zero.

I think I read it somewhere, there is a difference in JDM and USDM senders.
Hopefully someone with a JDM swap can confirm.

I had to swap out the sender on my JDM 7M-GTE. The JDM sender was a plug in electrical connector type, that I am assuming it's for a digital dash. You need the USDM sender for it to work.

It's located on the passenger side of the engine in the front. Remove your intake tube and you'll see it. It will be covered with a rubber boot, remove that and it looks like a bell with a nipple on top. In case you need to change it, it makes life a lot easier with the intake tube off. Oh, and you'll need a 14mm stubby wrench IIRC.
