Default Oil feed line problem..

Took the plug out of the block for the oil feed line, to find that the threads arent 1/8BSPT pipe thread, they are very course.. Anyone ever run into this problem?

the pipe thread hole is on the oil pressure sending unit bung on the intake sid eof the motor. If you have a crate motor or 1.8 you get your oil from there but the original 1.6 people, get a nice fitting on the hot side of the motor that takes a metric to AN fitting. i got some through summit for like 20 bucks apeice i believe but cant remember exacltly. Dont forget to get some to attach to the turbo as well the turbo might vary from engine in thread profile to but this is just good times.

yeah you need a fitting that is metric on one side and AN on the other.Yeah but Southern ILL would only be like an hour or 2 well worth it to help someone in my book. + im bored. http://store.summitracing.com/partde...5&autoview=sku
I dont remember the exact sizes but this is about what you will need. Off course you need to be sure of the block thread and your AN size first. i cant remember it off the top of my head.

Oh I see what you mean now. Thats pretty much exactly what I have right now.. Just I dont have the right size lol. I may see if I can get some parts from the hardwars store to make an adapter to use the adapter I currently have. I would rather have a brass fitting than the aluminum earls fitting too.. But who knows what i'll end up doing. Thanks for the info!

I was thinking trying to make something like this, dont pay attention to sizing im just throwing those out there..

[BLOCK][M10 X1.5 to 1/8BSP adapter peices][1/8BSPP to 6AN adapter in pics][for the win.]

1/8BSPP seems like something thats going to be hard to find...

Thats odd, I have always heard that the oil port on the block was 1/8 British Pipe Parallel, straight from Corky Bell.
