Can't think of any pros, unless they are more accurate. However, I can
think of a great con. Oil soaked interior. Back in the early 70's, I put a
trio in my 71 Nova. It included a mechanical, oil pressure gauge, that
worked beautifully, until the ferrule chewed through the 1/8" plastic tubing
that came with it. Oil spraying out at 30 psi, makes a nice mess of carpet.
What are the pros and cons of using a mechanical oil pressure gauge with
the necessary 15 foot oil pressure line?? Electric gauge isn't much
more expensive, but I already have a mechanical gauge... comments??
