Hi Andy.

Depending on the pre-lube system, there is usually no connection between electronics.
I use a shur-flo pump which sucks oil directly from the sump and delivers it to the oil gallery via the oil sender or other access.

Takes about 20-30 seconds to fully charge the system and put out the oil light in my car.
Works brilliantly for me.
