I've bought an oil pressure gauge, but the sender will not physically screw in to the engine block due to lack of clearance, the inlet manifold gets in the way.
Any suggestions? Does anyone sell an extension piece so the sender will clear?
Thanks

sounds like you bought the wrong sender, show us a picture.

should be able to get an extension from a hardware store or plumbing source. Or why not use the outlet above the oil filter boss and plug the one at the back of the intake manifold

Thats where I generally take the feed off. Plenty of room for a mechanical sender & a T for a low oil pressure light.

A mate has just had the same problem, he got his adaptor from Demon Tweeks.
