    stock to aftermarket oil pressure/temp sending unit

    Looking for some ideas on how to mount my aftermarket pressure and temp sender in the STOCK location. Before I'm recommended the sandwich plate, I really don't want one. I want to utilize the stock location.

    Obviously I need to buy the Automoter adapter that goes from BSP to NPT, but I'm going to need a 1/8 NPT tee fitting to run both senders. Just looking for some pictures and part numbers of what you guys are using if you're doing it this way. Thanks.

    I don't know on the water temp. I need to do that one next. Maybe someone will post up the part number for it and save some time searching

    Thanks for that. I was going to get two of those. One for the oil port and the other for the water temp (our thermostat housing uses 1/8 BSPT as well).

    I just want to know what guys are using to "tee" the two senders off the same source. I want to be able to clear the half shaft so it can't stick out too far.

    I dumped the stock big oil pressure sender sense I pulled that gauge from my center cluster I did keep the idiot light sensor though. I wondered if the same fitting would work for the temp sender. I didn't even think about it when I ordered the one for the oil press. (sigh) I'll order it tomorrow and get it on the way. I hope to need it next week

    Actually, I guess you can't use that adapter for coolant temp. I think I'll take this route for that. 1995 3000GT: Defi Coolant Temperature Sensor Installation

    The AC temp sensor was only for 92 models, so that is plugged on my thermostat housing. Use a cheap brass bushing that goes from 3/8 to 1/4 NPT and voila.

    Just installed the water temp sensor using the 3/8 - 1/8 adapter plug in the plugged port on the thermostat housing. Went in beautifully. Now just need to check for leaks and that portion of the install is complete.

    On a side note, I went ahead and bought a brass T from home depot. Now I just need to see if it clears all components down there and if it does, it will work perfect. Both senders fit very nicely in it.
