Lots of GMC motorhome owners have installed these and have saved engines. It has both a visible and audible alarm that can be set.
Tom, thanks for the link to digi panel. I ordered a unit and this will more than fit my needs. I like the redundancy of the unit (lights and alarm) and set up for the DD 2cycle. It will also help to keep my eyes on the road. Great find, Thanks Ed

Woody, I will Break it down, and do some pictures. Art Woodell. Was well versed in the units capabilities and the ease of install. He doesn't take credit cards, checks only. Will post some pictures when unit arrives.

Been there, done that, got the T shirt. Engine shut down when sensor went south. Had to bypass sensor to continue.
Can anyone tell me where to get this part, and what these part #'s would correspond to at NAPA or another supplier?

Even if the current one still works for $50 it's worth the peace of mind knowing that I have a new sensor that might one day save my engine during a catastrophic loss of coolant.

I'm going to be up your way in few weeks so I'll buy you a cup of coffee when I'm in the area.....

If there was a way to incorporate the monitoring into the dash it would be great.
My split screen is shown in post 29 of this thread. It helps if the screen on the laptop is 16:9 dimensions.

Well we finally got our coach back and she's running fine. Also does anyone know what the manufacturer and part number of the oil sending unit on the 8V92?

Leroy, did you find the information on hooking up the silver Lief to the DDEC II connector? I have ordered the plug and have the sliver lieg package.

Attached is Leroy's original document. Use the "Transmission Diagnostic" part.

From an e-mail exchange Leroy and I had in early '07: "Ground is A, Blue to H(red in my case), White Data to J, and Black Data to K."
