You can also do something like this...

Ohhhh, wait, you have a analog gauge. Well, you could still use my method. But you're just asking for oil to leak all over with one of those gauges. Personally, I'd get a digital gauge.

It's that style of gauge that is very susceptible to leaks. The gauge required you to send oil in that tube from the engine to the gauge inside the car. If that tube gets a hole anywhere along that line fro rubbing under the dash you'll get some fun oil slicks.

If you wanted to use that gauge, get some copper tubing and a end flaring tool to make a solid path from the engine to the gauge.
