    Default placment of my oil temp sender ok?

    I needed a diffrent place to put my oil temp sending unit and thought what better place than the oil filter adapter casting but was wondering if this will cause too much of a restriction? Thanks dj

    Why would you spend all that time with a die grinder trying to improve oil flow and stick a sensor out in the middle of it? Oh, just an olds....lol
    So you figure the oil might get hot before it blows up

    No other place to really access oil temp on the block. My pan has a bung in it but i never used it. I kinda shortcut mine. I bought a digital with wire/probe deal off e-bay for $10. Stuck the probe to the oil filter with a hose clamp. Oil temp never ran past 240* and @ 240* it made 30 psi @ 1000 and [email protected] 4000 and called it good and stuck the temp gauge on the 12hp kohler on my air compressor.

    Is that sender 1/8 pipe? You could drill/tap the hole for 1/4 pipe and by the time you got a bushing in it the sender might not be sticking out in the middle of the oil flow.

    Well thats kinda the reason i did spend the time with a die grinder so when i stuck the sending unit in it it wouldnt be completly plugged shut lol i had it in the top first where the pipe plug is and that deff wouldnt have worked so i moved it there where there was less of the sender sticking out hoping it wouldnt flow any less than stock :/ kind of a presidential solution (pun intended)

    It is in the out side... I had it in the drain plug but when i went to the 4pt mounts it hits the mount eva after a cut a big chunk out of the bottom of the mount cause it was hitting the jet intake when i pull the engine this winter and put a 10qt pan on it in ill cut a hole in the pan and install a bung i just wanted to get on the water before i had to fill her full of antifreese and put her away for the winter...
