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.
Strange coincidence that I've got one on my shopping list for today for the next '40 I've got in build. The thread size in the block is 1/4" NPT and I use an adapter to AN-3 so I can then do remote mounted oil light & gauge sensors
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 itself?
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 and really like the clean look
Been far too long for an update so will get some photos as to progress over the next few days, just been looking at the wiring, like a challenge, not too bad so far but some input please from those who have IVA'd.
The common theme seems to be that you IVA then after change the dash to put the switches in you want, so on a SGT how hard is it to remove the dash post IVA? I have the "spare" switch trim panels for just such a task (although I may got for a metal look).
I am also thinking mine is actually (I think!!) IVA compliant now so it makes sense to get it trimmed, wire it all up, test it all then fit, anyone see any issues with that?
Just looking to remove the dash with the screen in and the clam fitted looks to be a bit of a pain.
Hi Shaun, might be worth contacting Belinda and Keith Wheelwright,(Belinda’s build chassis 17 ) was talking to Keith about dash removal at the Supercarfest. He did their dashboard so it could be easily removed, their car body is not an SGT one but the dash should not be to dissimilar, wish I had done the same with mine!
