Default Installed Oil Pressure Sender and did a compression test!

for 35 bucks i bought a new sender from Canadian Tire, then today in shop class I installed it. At idle, hot, it reads about 260-275 KPA...sorry to all you imperial people, thats at the half mark on the gage.
The compression test results are as follows

CYL 2. 160 PSI

CYL 4 152 PSI

CYL 6 152 PSI

CYL 1 152 PSI

CYL 3 150 PSI

CYL 5 150 PSI

They all held steady, the reason for the drop off was: the battery charger was off getting fixed, and my battery was running low, but non the less, my compression is great, and im pleased with that!
Damien-they don't make them like this anymore
