Where do I tie in a temp prob for my oil temp?
You can buy a billet oil filter cap that is already drilled and tapped 1/8npt. Or you can use the oil pressure test port that is already there on the stock oil filter housing. Right now I researching what size and thread is the oil pressure test port plug so I can put my sending unit there.
If you already have the Autometer gauges with the short sweep needle, the sending unit is all the same for the trans,coolant, and oil temp (part #2258). I'm gonna use my autometer trans temp gauge as a dual gauge for also monitoring the oil also. Gonna use a toggle switch that is on/off/on, the center terminal of the switch will be for the gauge, and one of the end terminals will go th the trans sending unit, while the other will go to the oil temp sending unit. So far, I spent $28 for a switch and autometer sending unit.
