Yes what type of changes for a 1976 FJ40 are required as far as wiring from FJ to new Dakota gauges?

If you search Dakota digital cluster ---there is a lot of info in 40s forum...I didn't started yet with install,but it shouldn't be that bad.Sensors are easy(new wire to each) and few other wires to put on park.brake circuit...

Yes, these will work with a Chevy small block. The kits use their own sensors and come with many different threaded adapters to install them into the engine.

I just bought and installed a dakota digital dash and I am having issues connecting my oil pressure sensor. Let me be more specific, I can't find a mechanic who can make this work. Unfortunately I do not have the knowledge to do this myself. Any help would be appreciated. I have a 1974 1.5 F engine that has just been rebuilt and I keep hearing that is has to be tapped. Not something I am really excited about having done to an engine that has less than 100 miles on her. Again, any knowledge on this would be much appreciated. DK's tech department didn't have a clue and said it should work, but the sizes are not compatible. I will probably try and call them myself and talk to them, but they could not help the shop I had look at it. Thank you guys for your time.

Hi is the issue just that the sensor won't thread into any available ports because the threads are different or are you saying it is all connected and you can't read oil pressure?
