Im trying to find a sender with an m22 1.5 thread that will go straight in with no adapter to help with ground clearance.
Let me know if you find one.
That would be the best option of course. No adapters to leak or stick out.
I've got my temp sender in the main oil channel for now(not the best I know but it doesn't obstruct any flow as the tip is just level with the top of the channel).
Shows 90/92 degrees cruising on the motorway and then about 80-85 around town.
I can't put it on the sump as we have many high speed bumps and holes in the roads. One of the manifolds has already got a bump on it!
Sorry for using your thread mate, but does anyone have idea what is the thread size of the oil pressure sender ? I have M10x1.0 , but someone told me it's M14x1.5 (the one on the top back of the engine block)
Just reading through the whole of this original post - and thought I would pitch in.
For me in the past (as well as the plan going forward) is to include it within the Mocal sandwich plate for the oil cooler. You can buy the sandwich plates that have a take off port for the oil temperature sender.
Perhaps as people say not the best place to read the temperature - but I would argue that if Mocal supply such a product - it can't be all that bad. My other point is - just how accurate do you want / need to be on oil temperature? With such small analogue gauges sat in the dash, most people would struggle to clearly identify a temperature within say 5 degrees, read at and angle of 30 to 45 degrees. Striving for really accurate readings are a bit odd in my mind, what would be better would be a warning light, set at a temperature, that comes on to warn you you have reached a certain temperature, then look at the gauge and just see which way the temperature is moving, downwards hopefully after you had adjusted or stopped what you were doing.
