Can anyone please tell me what size thread is the Pinto oil pressure switch in the block? I want to get a Tee piece to have both the gauge & oil light.

Either 1/4" or 1/8" NPTF - Can't remember which, think it was 1/8"

I bought one from ETB Instruments a while back for mine...

Don't know the thread size but if you buy something like the VDO oil gauge the sender has provision for a light as well


Thought for the week.
Forget healthfoods. I need all the preservatives I can get.

Burton Power do this sort of stuff too ( https://www.burtonpo...m/default.aspx).
I've just fixed myself up with some gear like this to accomodate Capri Clocks.

The oil pressure switch thread size on my pinto block is 1/4" NPT. I had to get an oil gauge T-piece made by LMA to add the gauge sender which was 1/8" NPT.

I bought this mail order, possibly from Burtons, or you could try the LMA website www.LMA-Group.com
