1978 CJ5 Oil pressure gauge.

My 78 CJ has a oil pressure gauge that has a tube running from the engine block to it, no wires. Is this stock? where can I get a replacement gauge or a kit to convert to electrical? I ordered a gauge but is a electric gauge.

I don't think it is stock but if it works keep it, as liquid line gauge reads accurately. Personally I like a steel line properly installed. Your local parts store can get you a 12V gauge, there are also Jeep look alike gauges available on line. I don't Know who makes a good one.
