oil pressure gauge install

The sender I got is 1/8-27 NPT.
Stock is 1/8 BSPT.
So is there any difference? If so, explain please. Is there some kind of adapter I can get or do I have to re-tap?

I think I'm going to wire it to the side of the head under the coil.

Re: oil pressure gauge install

different thread pitches.

use this, directly off the stock oil pressure sensor:

i wouldn't run the tee/sender directly off the head. too many instances of it snapping off when the motor revs/under load, then you gotta drill it out, retap it, etc etc.

Would it be easier to get the read from the filter?

Is there any write ups from using that?
Also, isn't it hard to run it off the stock sensor because it's a tight fit because of the halfshaft,

just do a lil research about using the sandwich plates on our preludes. i THINKKKK i remember hearing something about clearance issues with the filter and the frame with the sandwich plate on. if there's no issues, then i see no reason why you can't do that.


write-up:
-undo stock OP sensor. its a pretty big socket, like 28-32mm IIRC.
-install stock OPS onto female end of the tee fitting.
-install feed line off the block using the supplied adapter.
-connect other end of feed line to the male end of tee fitting.
-connect the OP sender (for the gauge) to one side of the fitting, and the other side should have a block off plug.
-run wire from OP sender to gauge.
-hook up power and ground.
