sender P/N for factory oil pressure gauge 300TDi

Can anyone confirm P/N PRC4043 is the correct sender for the factory oil pressure gauge for a 300TDi? I tried searching, but have had no luck finding a P/N. I came up with that one from the Microcat and various parts seller websites, but I can't find a conclusive reference to the 300TDi.

Many thanks!

Ever since Rovers North stopped using normal part numbers it's a pain, but they have them here....

I'm getting mixed numbers and words here.

Tony, you ask for a guage? for in the dash? there is "guage, oil" listed in microcat as pt # PRC7319 (under body,electrics,instruments,instruments clocks) which is oil pressure, available from various UK outlets


PRC4043 is the oil pressure sender for 2.5 NA and TurboD's, not 300's... here's one

300Tdi oil pressure switch (for the red light... either on or off, not a variable guage) is PRC6387

Hey Jim,
I have the gauge, need the sender. I want to keep the warning light, so intend to use a T fitting. As you note, it has been confirmed to me the PRC4043 is not listed for the 300TDi, but I would think the 200 and 300 are similar enough that if I can sort adapters it should work. And the gauge I have is likely from a 200TDi truck too, since apparently the oil pressure gauge option ended with that engine.

For the record -- attached is a PDF (with thanks to Western on the LR4x4 board in the UK) with the parts needed to add an OEM oil pressure gauge to a 200TDi. I've ordered these parts and will see if they work on the 300TDi. The oil filter mount and oil pressure switch are very similar if not identical to the 200TDi, so I think this should work.
