Here we have a universal oil filter sandwich plate adapter in silver colour, they are CNC machined anodised aluminium. Each plate comes with three 1/8” NPT fittings for you to install your sensors into. These are used so you can easily install oil temperature & oil pressure sensors from your gauges onto your motor. These make the job of installing your gauge sensors much simpler and neater, no need to drill and tap your sump for the oil temp sensor, or remove factory oil pressure sensors either.
“Please note” that these sandwich plates do not come with any centre filter thread adapters, we sell high quality stainless steel adapters separately. The reason we have the kits done like this is so customers don’t buy plates with cheaper alloy fittings and also end up with 3 extra fittings they would never use. We decided to buy the sandwich plates separately, then source high quality stainless steel adapters to also sell separately so people can buy just the adapter they need to use with the plate and them be high quality stainless steel and not cheap alloy fittings.
Just a word of caution, about installing an oil pressure sensor directly into the sandwich plate. We here don’t like connecting the sensors directly into the plates, why you ask, well oil pressure sensors unlike temp sensors are bulky and weigh more, we personally wouldn’t just screw the oil pressure sensors into these plates, reason is there is a ton of vibration coming from the motor and with the weight of an oil pressure sensor, we wouldn’t personally risk having a sensor fitting fail.
The way we do it here is mount the oil pressure sensor somewhere close to the sandwich plate, then make up a line that runs from the sensor and into the plate. This removes the sensor having to deal with lots of vibration from the motor under its own weight on the fitting. Sure plenty of people just screw their sensors right into the sandwich plate, we aren’t saying that’s wrong, but just wanted to explain how we go about it when doing an install, just to be extra careful and you can decide either way.
