That"s correct. SBF = little block Ford, and also includes (for this discussion) the 302W and the 351W. In this picture the electric oil pressure sender and also tubing is plugged into the only exterior oil port.

I require oil temp, which way the probe needs to it is in in or close to a source of oil flow, or my readings will be cold.I thought about putting the on a remote oil filter, however that"s simply one more thing come mount.What space your thoughts?-Andrew
My oil temp is in my pan. To be easiest ar to placed it. Simply make certain its low enough to it is in in the oil.
Are you thinking of making use of an oil push gauge? one more question is perform you arrangement to usage an oil cooler?

yes, im utilizing an oil push gauge, i m sorry is why i require the added port.MIke_R, you just drilled and tapped your pan?
Then the port is your finest place because that oil pressure if friend don"t use a far oil filter. The most typical places because that oil pressure is the block and a remote filter, the ideal places for the temp is the block, a far filter or the pan. Therefore if girlfriend don"t go with a remote oil filter, you"re hands space tied i believe.

The pan is a better place for your oil temp sender. Most pans have a supplication in the pan for the sender.

We have actually a adapter because that the short oil sender that is on most of the stock format pans that makes that port 1/8" Npt for the sender. They space $36.00Steve
yes, im making use of an oil press gauge, i beg your pardon is why i need the additional port.MIke_R, you simply drilled and also tapped your pan?
Oil temp gauge sender location
Space: The stock oil harbor in the block is the absolute ideal place because that the oil pressure sender together the harbor is right at the oil pump for this reason if oil pressure fails you know right away. If you placed a tee in that location you have the right to put in a sender and a switch for an idiot light to warning if oil pressure drops listed below a preset point. That edge gets a little busy though, as there is the oil filter, and headers best there. Friend CANNOT and also don"t want to use that port for anthing else as it is too small. One oil temp sender have the right to be put in the pan with a weld on 1/8 NPT bung, or in the stock oil level port on the driver side of a stock pan using Forte"s adapter v no welding needed, or you can put it in the far filter adapter. Girlfriend must have flowing oil to view oil temp and also the closer come the oil pump the better. That way you can see if a bearing is heater up. The pan is not the finest solution however it is much easier and better than no oil temp in ~ all. Ron
