Default Oil Pressure Sender thread type?

I no longer have my OEM oil pressure sender as I shipped it with my turbo kit when I sold it.

Well now I'm trying to find a bolt that will fit into the port to plug it. I can't seem to find the thread type.

I'd actually like to find a coupler that will screw into the port and allow me to screw in my AEM oil pressure sender. Buuut I can always just tee off my oil feed to my turbo for that.

So anyone know what the thread pitch is for the OEM oil pressure sender?

Which is 1/8-28, 1/8npt is 1/8-27 so it will seem like its fine then suddenly strip.

I've seen folks thread 1/8" NPT adapters into this hole and hang tees of off them with no problems, and then I've heard of folks braking 'em too.

Safe is good.

Try this: http://www.pegasusautoracing.com/pro...p?Product=3230

Grab the 3230-2-3AN "1/8 BSP Male to 3AN Male Adapter, Steel" and then stick a -3AN cap on it.

Or similar.
