There are adapters out there that allow you to use the oil pan drain plug to hold the sender.

This is true, but I guess they are popular with the VW set. VDO also makes cylinder head temperature gauges which replace a spark plug metal gasket with a sender.

Yes I think a 'T' off of the oil light sender is great candidate location.

temp sensore

Hello FMG_V6_btb,

I am looking for a temp sensor like you showed, did you buy it recently? can you tell me where? Can you tell me also the thread diametere and pitch?

Thank-you very much for the help.

T off the oil pressure light sender is OK for pressure, but not for temp. With no oil flow, all you'd get there is the temperature of the aluminum. Gotta plumb into the bulk oil.

Agreed, clean engine, umm, pretty! Something I've always kicked around for SPICA cars is to have a Exhaust Temp Gauge then have a motorized fuel cutoff solenoid that can be remotely screwed in and out to change the mixture for different driving conditions.

EX temp just infers AFR. Why not use a wide-band oxygen sensor and an AFR meter to directly measure? Many exhaust set-ups already have the right bung welded on.

Hi Carlo, I bought the sensor many years ago, but it is possible to buy it nowadays, mind that the gauge have to be selected according to the sensor, in my case, both sensor and gauge are manufactured by FAE (Spanish brand), you can have a look here:

Catálogos | FAE | Fabricante Líder de Recambios Eléctricos del Automóvil

Sorry, but now i'm not able to remind the thread diameter and pitch.

Ciao,

My Dad's truck has an oil temp sensor that goes down the dipstick tube. Came from a trailering supply store. Single gauge with a multipole switch for Oil, TX, water, etc.
