Default Garmin / Kavlico Sensors

Doing some research on the sensor kit I'm about to install in the build. Everything Spruce sells for Garmin still lists the old kavlico part numbers for the sensors subject to leaking. Looking up the MFR model # on this page says these are the old style sensors.

If you want the updated sensors, they're listed specifically for Dynon.

Can anyone in the know confirm Garmin is still providing the problematic sensors with their kits? I don't see any issues with putting a V2 sensor on a G3X, but can anyone confirm?

The last G3X Sensor kit we received came with the newer Oil Pressure Sensor P4055-5020-4 / 011-04202-30 even though Garmin listed it as including the older Sb'd part P4055-150G-E4A / 494-30004-00. The inventory list in the kit still listed the old sensor even though it had the newer one.

The 4 Cylinder Lycoming Sensor Kit, part number K00-00512-00, comes with a 150 PSIG Oil pressure sensor, part number 011-04202-30, which is Kavlico part number P4055-5020-4. The website link you shared does not appear to have been updated with this part number change, we will work on getting this corrected.

Thanks,

Justin

Appreciate the response. I've got a 4 cylinder sensor kit coming through a garmin distributor, but I wasn't sure if I should cancel that order and buy the individual V2 sensors. Sounds like I'll be good to go and only need an additional oil pressure sensor for the reservoir tank.
