Water temp sensor vs. Begi spacer
Trying to fit this:
Looks easy, right?
I have several ideas:
- Find a fitting that reduces the sensor
- Find someone to drill and tap the spacer for the sensor or for the close fitting (below)
- Do not mount the sensor in the spacer
- Sell both and give up
It fit on the red piece perfect, but was just a hair too large for the spacer. Really a bummer because it seemed like it was ideal.
Strangely enough, on the board below, the Female 1/2" fit the red piece, and the Male 3/8" fit the spacer. But when I find the exact piece I hoped exist, it does not work.
If I enlarge a hole to fit the sensor, I'm guessing it may make contact with the thermostat. If this happens, is cutting the sensor shorter an option? Will it still work? Need to cover it with solder (or whatever the shiny stuff is)?
Here they are lined up:
