around the oil filter on the engine block it is a cuple of bolts with square heads, are some of them a plug into a oil chamber?
or take out the bolt in the oil pan modifie it and mount the sensor in the senter of that oil drain bolt, than should read the correct engine oil temperature right?
somebody know what type thread size the oil drain bolt has?
