Been there.  For the later model MGB with 
recessed dash panel and limited space behind, and 
the console in place, Left Hand Drive, You may 
need to remove the large instrument next door to 
the left before you can get to the oil pressure 
gauge.  If you can't get to that iunstrument, 
then you may have to remove the next instrument to the left first.

Different model years have different instruments, 
and some of them may have been swapped in 
positions.  In a pinch, you may have to start at 
the left end of the dash and remove all of the 
instruments in sequence until you get to the 
smaller gauge you want.  Then reach in through 
the larger hole for access to the smaller gauge 
connections and mounting bracket.

Reassembly is the reverse of disassembly.
