Would anyone know if the oil sending connection on the top,near the distribuator is a threaded connection and how you go about removing the electrical sending housing to replac it with mechanical connection, the motor is in the car. I cant see howw you remove this without damaging the ceramic electrical connection.Any help would be appricated.
thanks Paul.

I am pretty sure it screws in so you just see if you got a big socket ot maybe pliers and take it out then run the mech. line,:)

Actually, there is a special socket made just for that sensor because I believe it's 7-sided instead of 6-sided like most bolts/nuts. Pep-Boys should carry it.

I just use channel-locks.
You are on the money ... and they come in a couple of sizes. We bought a set since we have been turning around so many motors lately. If they are really in tight (and the motor is still in the car) it can be difficult :eek: to get it out using a socket, grips or locks without damaging the unit.

You might be able to "borrow" the tool from a buddy or the parts house ... unless you want to have the special tool sitting in the back of your toolbox for a while.

If it all possible, would you guys know the actual thread size of the oil pressure sensor? The reason why I am asking is because I am getting a leak around the adaptor that I have on my set-up. I have tried the white thread tape and the oil was still leaking. I think that the adaptor I have is fubared to some degree and it needs to be replaced. I just don't know the size of the actual fitting that I would need. Any help would be apprecaited.
