Replaced my EFIS (AFS 400o series -> 5400 series). My fuel pressure and oil pressure sensors (IO-320) are Kavlico 41,101 (0-50) and 41,301 (0-150) respectively.

Am I correct that those sensors translate to Kavlico Dynon part number 101716-000 for the fuel pressure sensor and 101693-000, which is apparently what I will expect to see in the configuration menu?

Thanks

Last year Dynon and others began offering a single sensor for both fuel and oil that is less prone to leaking, as some have. It is also more sensitive/accurate.

103757-000 (0-150)

Yeh...I saw that, thanks. Something to be aware of for the future, but right now I'm not looking to replace those two sensors. I presume that these older ones will work OK, but want to make sure I get the sensor type entered correctly in the menu. The older EFIS used Kavlico part numbers in the drop-down menus, the EFIS I just installed in its place uses Dynon part numbers.

ETA:

I wasn't aware that AFS (don't know about Dynon) issued a service bulletin on this sensor issue. Advanced Flight Systems just sent me this, FYI. They used the F-word, which kind of puts a different spin on it.

Yes, Dynon issued an SB, as well as Garmin.

I did order a couple of those 103757-000 sensors. Do they use the same harness as the older sensors...101716-000 and 101693-000? Justt plumb them and plug them in?
