So today I broke what I thought was the oil pressure switch on the front to the engine. Clymers states on page 103 that it’s the MAP sensor on carbureted models. I just need some assistance before I go buy the wrong part.

02 Electra Glide, 88cu.

Thanks,
Eric

NEVER EVER trust a Clymer manual. Pay the buck and get a REAL Harley service manual. You won't regret it.

I believe the difference in the oil pressure senors is the one with the post is just for operating an oil light, the one you show on your bike is to operate a light and a gauge.

That's what the sending unit on my FLHTI looks like. Idiot like only. FLHT/I s don't have a gauge.

I would bet because yousr is a touring model the wiring is already installed from the factory you would just need to find it and install just the gauge because it was an available option. My bike is a softail and there was no option for it, my bike has the single post sensor.

Hey, OP. Are you sure you don't have an Electra Glide Classic? Not the standard. Standard uses the switch, like in Misters pic. Classic uses the sensor like you have.


Whichever you have, #5 in the parts diagram above is the MAP sensor.
It may have been one of the in between builds, but the vin number and title Identifies it as a standard.

I would think you have it figured out by now, but if you are still unsure, take your old one with you to make sure you get the correct part.

Probably correct. I replaced mine with an aftermarket gauge.
