    Some help would be appreciated guys,
    Basically come to fitting spa design gauge and the oil temp sensor is too small for the the hole already in the moroso sump.
    Whats my way around this im assuming a adapter?
    If anyone can point me in the right direction or what i need to purchase plus where from that would be great as im really struggling to find a solution.
    Need to do this urgently as got track in few days.

    Thanks guys

    I cant remember the thread size for it but see if the bung from the turbo return fits the temp sensor hole.
    If this is the case then your going to need a 1/2" NPT to 1/8 NPT(or BSP sometimes) fitting
