wbx oil pressure guage t piece?

Post by itchyfeet »

Sorry if this has been covered but looking a standard t pieces at 50mm long with a side 1/8 ntp thread for a sender unit thats not enough to clear the wbx engine case, yes you can get the remote versions with pipe, they are expensive and you then have to fix them somewhere but I can't see another way.

What do others do?
Not really interested in a wet guage

I bought one of these remote T pieces, it works well except the P clip they give you is the wrong size and won't hold it securely or make a good earth so I had to make a bracket, otherwise easy to fit.

This is what is needed fo an electric oil pressure gauge as far as I can see.

I wrapped the braided hose in rubber hose in places to limit chaffing against push rod tubes and on edge of tins

I like your bracket, I used the p clip and soldered a lucar connector onto a jubilee clip to attach the earth to. The p clip just about hold it in place.
