Now sorted: Oil pressure gauge wanted (Sigma)

[Got one from FB marketplace].

I'm after a standard oil pressure gauge for a Sigm TiVCT engine. I assume it's the same as the fixed-cam Sigma version.

Anyone got one knocking around, perhaps after converting to mechanical?

Ah, you're here too! Thanks.

In case you're interested (unlikely, I know...) the reason I'm after the sensor as well is that those sensors are intended to measure temperature and pressure, but only the pressure part is connected. My one doesn't work properly for temperature (voltage is way lower than it should be). I'm not sure whether Caterham bought a batch of faulty sensors where the temperature part doesn't work, or whether I was just unlucky. So I thought I'd try another and see if it was the same. It may turn out to be useless, but if not I'm gloing to connect up an auxiliary display controlled by an Arduino to show temp, pressure, ambient temp and time.

As fr the gauge, that's much simpler, the threaded mounts have both broken (who makes threaded studs out of plastic, for God's sake?) and it's held on with gaffer tape at the moment.
