Hi all,

Just bought club car's books ( manual and suppliment) for my 1999 gas, but it doesn't say anything about how to remove the oil sending unit to replace it. Does anyone know this?

Thanks, L B Masters dripdoc@neo.rr.com

All the other 99 CC's (and older) at my Campgrounds have an oil light on the dash that will light up when you turn the ign on untill the motor starts and then goes out when oil pressure is built just like a car.
Mine wasn't lighting at all. the book showed me where it was and told me to disconnect the wire and short it to ground to test the dash light. When I did so, it lit. When reconnected to the sending unit it doesn't light.
The book says to replace the sending unit, but doesn't explain how to get it out.
There are no bolts, no hex head , no screws or anything on my 1999 CC 9hp Kawasaki engine on or near the sending unit.
It lookes like a rubber plug with a wire male connector in the center. It may be made to pull out, but I won't try that untill I find out for sure.

R U Saying the side cover has to come off to get at the oil pressure sending unit?
I used to think Club Cars were well built.

After finding out that the engine has to come out and be opened up just to change the oil sending unit, now I find out that B.U. doesn't sell the oil sending unit for ANY golf car.
Does anyone know where to get an oil pressure sending unit for a 1999 CC?

Wow Jerry,

Chill guy, No one was putting B.U. down. Even if they don't sell the part, that's their business.
Actually I did call B.U. to ask about the part, but they didn't return the call yet, I'm assuming their pretty busy this time of year.
The book reffers to it as an "oil sending unit" in the world of auto's that usually describes a pressure sending unit.
MY BAD.
Also, because B.U. didn't have it online, and I did assume they didn't sell it, so I called.
But just to let YOU know, the Club Car Maintainance service suppliment I got from B.U. states on page13-32
"quote"
" NOTE Engine removal is required for repair of parts that are inside the crankcase.

Yes I did see carts that the light comes on with the Ign on, otherwise I wouldn't be worried about it, now that you have explained it, I am very relieved to find out I don't have to tear it down. Would the older carts be different than the 99?

I guess I just expected it to be pressure activated by the fact that this motor has an oil pump and a filter.
I also swear that there's a guy with an older CC at paradise lake that has the same dash light as mine and it comes on when he shuts it down and the light goes out when it starts. I am super HAPPY now that I know there's nothing wrong with her. here's a pic with a roof I built.
