Oil Temp/Oil Pressure sensor fitting.
« on: 08 May 2010, 14:02 »
After some advice on fitting sensors for oil pressure/oil temp gauges.
will i need a oil filter sandwich plate connect the sensors for the gauges or is there somewhere else to connect?

You can go straight into the original oil pressure port - Have to remove your OEM one though

Can you fit both of the sensors in that area?? Been looking at some bits and pieces and found that there is meant to be 2 threaded drillings on the filter mount or is it a case of getting an adaptor with more thatn one hole and doing it that way as i would guess the car would have probelms if you disconnected the OEM sender.

The gauges are the ones that you sold to MK1macca Jordy

I got both these gauges running. Had to buy a sandwich plate and run them from there.

Pretty sure the 5th one down is what i got but depends on the size of the fitments to your gauges that your paperwork should tell you mate.

Not sure which of these to go for  :undecided:

Does anyone know the thread of the standard drillings by the oil filter, i'm sure i read somewhere that they are m10x1, as most of the stuff i have found so far has been 1/8 NPT
