Re: oil sender questions?

hello,
i had the same problem. and no there is no other spot to put the sender. i went to home depot and got some threaded pipe fittings and just extended the sender until it cleared the lip on the intake. you can also get a 90 degree fitting if the hight becomes an issue.
i hope this will help you. it works awesome i have had zero problems.
take care
steve

You might try up front of the block, above the timing cover and below the intake manifold, on the pass side. There may be a 1/8 inch pipe plug.

This pipe plug is the front end of the main oil galley.

Re: oil sender questions?

Some blocks have a tap just above the oil filter , I think it was part of a external cooler package. This is not the same taps that the newer 350's have,, its more on the side of the filter than in front. Other than that you can do like one person mentioned. Get a short 1/8 nipple and plumb into 45 block bushing or if you have the manifold clearance,, use a 45 deg street ell. Surely you have enuff room to add the 1/8 nipple and collar. I think they make several differant pressure transducers. Remember the very small and short is a switch, the big can is a transducer.
