Thread: Late Panhead oil switch adapter

  1. #1

    Late Panhead oil switch adapter

    I'm trying to find an adapter so that I can put a gauge on my oil pump and still use the factory oil switch sending unit. Any of you guys running a setup like this??.I've been to multiple stores to try to find this and this listing below is the closest I've come to anything on the internet I'm not really sure of the threads per inch on the factory oil sending switch has anybody done this before? I believe the gauge is 1/8 npt.
    Or is this something I just have to have made up ??https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?m...2F301814251351

    Stock switch threads in the pump pre '58 are 3/8-24, from '58 up they are 1/8 NPT.

    Paddy, My local NAPA has many fittings like that, you should be able to find them in any auto supply store, or give a camping world store a try,they have a good assortment of hard to find fittings.

    A 1/8 NPT standard brass pipe tee is available in most any hardware store for a lot less money. Also, McMaster Carr has them, and adapters so you can extend a component, or put it on a 45 degree angle.
