im thinking of replacing the 3 centre gauges with 3 aftermarket ones. so im looking at were the sensors are installed in the bay. specifically for oil temp and oil pressure.

ive read the sticky on here with the guy thats done it where he puts oil temp in sump plug and he replaces the oil pressure switch of original gauge with his aftermarket sensor.

what i was hoping to do was buy an oil filter sandwich plate that has the 1/8 npt outlets for aftermarket gauges.
i take it i can put both gauge sensors into this if it has enough outlets and run the pair of them back to dash from there.

i was just hoping to leave the old oil pressure switch in and not mess with the sump as in sticky.

my main question there is can i you run both temp and pressure from the sandwich plate adapter.

also forgot to mention im running an oil cooler off the sandwich plate aswell. will this affect me running oil pressure from this location?

Usually there is only one "tap" but if you install double T "+" adaptor then technically you can run both sender from sandwich plate. Cooler is all so under same pressure so doesn't affect it. Does you're sandwich plate has thermostat built in or not?

the only issue with that is i couldnt fit my cooler pipes to those holes as there to small. i have 10an fittings on my braided hose onto sandwich plate.

anyway if i can run both senders from plate i will keep looking

thermostat is a must on oil cooler installs, OTSP1-3/4UNF plate has inbuilt stat, oil temp sensor ideally needs be in moving oil flow to give worthwhile readings, pressure sensors are easy fit in t off adaptors .

I’ve used that fitting on my fuel and oil pressure sensors. Easy way when using AN fittings.

Yes it has thermostat but looks to of been messed with due to large amount grey silicone around it.
If that used unknown part, strip and check it as faulty stat or bits of silicone going into oil system can in worse case scenario kill an engine pretty quick .

Looks like grey sealant oozed out from thermostat mounting .
I come across too many engines with issues traced back to poor/excessive silicone use thought it worth a casual warning so could be checked out if needs be .
