I don't understand the comment.
"A helicoil is a metal replacement insert thread, but you'll likely get away with sealant on the idiot light. "
The oil pressure at the sending unit is the same as at the "idiot light".
A helicoil is the way to go but you don't want to get drill or tap shaving to get into the sump. This might not be a real problem because all the oil has to go through the filer before it goes to the bearings. I have seem guys put heavy grease on the drill bit and tap. Going really slow and cleaning out the shavings and regreasing every few seconds of drill/taping will help.
N.B. I came across something the other day.
a. Do a Google on the word "idiot".
Click on the images option on the top of the page.
b. Do the same for the word "moron" for a more extensive definition .
Much fun... ......

We need a law, one that says every male gets a 10 car garage on his 16th birthday so that when he is 60 years old he will never have to say "**** I wish I had never sold that car".
(No, I did not put those "****" up there the system did... )
Question: Do they really make Alfas in any other color then red?
Answer: Well they really do. I fell in love with a Dark Blue Spider on BAT.
I have not done over to the dark side, only the Blue side.
It took me 50 years to see the light..
