this is exactly what I found and got. Thanks for the replies everyone!Glowshift has an adapter too GS-FA-OP-02:
GlowShift’s Oil Sensor Thread Adapter for the Ford Mustang GT and F-150 5.0L Coyote Makes It Easy To Install Oil Temperature and Oil Pressure Sensors.www.glowshiftdirect.com
View attachment 75222
I’m using the Killer B adapter in the low-level port on the oil pan. I’m not convinced it’s low enough for a good reading for street/highway driving, but definitely works on track when the oil is in a constant state of movement. As you mentioned, it won’t be peak temps, but it is the temp that your pump will see when it starts the oiling process over again.What is the consensus on the best place to pick up oil temps with these setups? Will the 90 like Rod did remove it enough from flow to significantly lower its temp reading? Would putting it in the pan w/an adapter to the plug like 1 of these be better at getting you usable data?
(I just grabbed a link as an example. this is probably not the right thread pitch)1/2NPT to 1/8NPT Adapter will allow the use of aftermarket temperature sensors that have 1/8NPT threads. Our aftermarket oil pan includes an extra 1/2NPT port that can be used with this adapter. Measure the oil temperature where it should be, in the panwww.killerbmotorsport.net
Is the temp in the pan close to peak? Probably not eh? Ideally I'd like to get it in the line just before the cooler. But right now I don't think I'm willing to give up the simplicity of the Mishi Sandwich plate port. But I suppose it wouldn't be too difficult to cut the line and put in an in-line sensor adapter.
Thoughts on best location and set up?
I too have the Ford gauge pod and will be doing this install. I am going to pull water temp up at the radiator like @Fabman did if I can find his thread again.Double check your sending unit thread pitch before ordering - the big side is M12, but the other end comes in both NPT and standard PT. I found out the hard way.
Yeah, it’s not an M12 - I’ll have to double check the one that I ordered when I get back home. Been checking out the gulf side of Florida this week.
