    Oil Cooler Location

    Hi Eddy Possibly not, may be overkill I guess, just seen a few fitted in the build logs in the UK and sort of assumed it was a given to fit one. I have trouble fitting the pressure gauge with the AC compressor (and it fouls the block anyway) so was thinking a sandwich plate would allow the oil...

    Oil Cooler Location

    Anyone any thoughts, ideas, do / don't do's on locating the oil cooler on a SGT? I have seem then standing upright to the inside of the N/S wheel with a top strap but not sure of that would incur a lot of stress vibration even with rubber mounts?? Cheers

    GT40 replica prices

    Best part of £100k sterling and you still get sink waste pipe as what look like air vents !!! Other than that it looks quite tidy but really there must have been a better solution ;)

    Southern GT Chassis #54 Build - The What Have I Done Chronicles!!

    Cheers Ian will do Thanks Paul, I did mull over that as an option, I have found some sandwich plates that seem to have an oil pressure takeoff but that ETB sensor seems beefy so may not fit even that, did not realise you had those gauges, I spent ages looking then plumped for their GT40 range...

    Southern GT Chassis #54 Build - The What Have I Done Chronicles!!

    Ok so went to put the oil pressure sender on now I have the correct reducer but the one from EBT instruments to match my gauge does not fit, it won't screw in as it fouls the block slightly but mainly it fouls the AC compressor, any options? Fit to the oil cooler take off maybe? Or the cooler...

    Southern GT Chassis #54 Build - The What Have I Done Chronicles!!

    Anyone any idea what the thread size for the oil pressure gauge in a 302 block is so I can get the correct adaptor? Mind you I wish I had fitted it before the AC compressor, my hands are just tooooo big :) Fuel tanks now in, that was a tight fit as well, as seems most parts of this fine car are.
