Team,
I have a '85 K10 that originally had a 305 with a Q-Jet carb & electric choke but has since been swapped over to a BBC with an Edelbrock carb & electric choke. This is not a daily driver, but something to putt around town in on non rainy days in summer with a/c on and winter with heat on ;D

When I changed to the BBC, I put a new oil pressure light switch (small switch w/2 wires) AND an oil pressure gauge switch (large switch w/1 wire) since it originally had both. They are both mounted to a fitting I installed on the back of the block. Last week when I cranked it up, I noticed a little smoke coming up from engine bay on driver side and began to investigate. I saw a few drops of oil on driver side dripping onto the hedder so I proceeded to shut'er down. After further investigation, I found that oil was either coming from the brass fitting that the oil pressure light switch is mounted to or the switch itself.

I thought (if my old memory serves me right) I had read somewhere back sometime ago that the oil pressure light switch worked the choke light on the original engine with electric choke.

Question - Do I need the oil pressure light switch since I've swapped engines or can I delete it out of my plumbing? I know I need the pressure gauge switch since I still have the factory oil gauge which works.

Thanks for any insight.

 According to the chart either Polar White or White were available in 1977.   does anyone know if this is correct?  and if one would be more common as a two tone option?

The chips seem to show the white as the brightest color.  I'm not sure which to use.  I'm adding a white two tone to my light buckskin K10  which never had it so I don't have a  code to use.
