    that looks really tricky with the motor in the boat! I agree the pan oil temp would be ideal.

    Oil pan.


    If not oil pan you could always try placing a temp probe in an accecesory port of a remote oil filter mount:

    I think you're suppose to remove the plug and do it on a bench. Just a guess

    why you gotta be like that? I think you need a hug! I thought i would try drilling & tapping thru the bottom of the hull.
    the huge 90 degree fitting on my basset pan just clears the hull. I don't think it will unthread without lifting the motor. therefore the question about the port that i can get to with ese,which (i think ) would be similar to being on the remote filter.

    I'm thinking you might disrupt the oil path( flow) if you use that port at the front of the engine.

    Why not just put a tee in your oil pressure line and stick it there? Couldn't be any more inaccurate

    if you think that will be accurate. that was my concern . i didn't think it would be accurate due to the lack of flow. that would sure be easy

    Whats it worth to you if this works in your pan and gauge? Should I tell you now where to send the money, or can I trust you to PM me when it works?
