    Has anyone replaced their oil pressure switch with one that actually gives an early warning? The standard one comes on at around 0.2bar which to me seems too late!

    T-piece and a gauge - you can never have enough information about oil pressure

    You’re right but I’d rather not have oil running into the cab so want either an earlier low pressure warning or a transducer setup

    Well, ok - but a capillary gauge is the gold standard for measuring oil pressure..... there are electrical oil pressure gauges - but they're not as good, and just another electrical "thing" to go wrong - A quality capillary gauge will last longer than you, so I wouldn't worry about oil in the cab...:)
