I did the same as Roger, I have the same motor as he
does with hydraulic head.  For sure the idiot light
low pressure sender was there at factory, many things
get moved around over the years with people tinkering
around without a clue what they are doing.

Put the idiot light sender there or the dual function
VDO sender that most others use.
