Stripped oil pressure sensor threads...

Long story short, I pulled the oil pressure sensor off the top of the HPOP reservoir and in a rush, stripped the threads putting it back on. What is the fix for this? A new HPOP reservoir?

either way you will need to pull the cover off the res , you may be able to run a tap in to clean the threads .. Don't quote me on it , but IIRC the threads are 1/8 pipe ...

Re: Stripped oil pressure sensor threads...

well i got a tap and die set so i'll keep my fingers crossed that it'll work. what is the procedure for removing the cover? just pump oil out and pull the bolts up top? or is it more involved?

Worse case would be that you will need to pull it off, drill and tap it for a bushing that would reduce it down to the 1/8" that you need.

Re: Stripped oil pressure sensor threads...

Thanks, in all the stuff i've done to my truck, i've yet to disassemble any part of the HPOP (other than the IPR), so i thought it might have been an ordeal, but glad to hear it should be fairly straight forward. I plan to upgrade to an aftermarket pump someday to support my injectors...

Re: Stripped oil pressure sensor threads...

Heli-coil is a threaded insert that will work. Comes in a kit you drill srripped hole oversize tap and screw in the heli-coil and the inside of the coil is the original size that you stripped. Iirc they are ss and strong so you will not have to worry bout cross threading again, they work awesome.

A helicoil would work but I have never seen one for a pipe thread.

Re: Stripped oil pressure sensor threads...

I've never seen one for a pipe thread either. Remember that older PSDs had the 1/8 NPT switches, while the later ones had the straight thread o-ring'ed switched (helicoil would work for those). Cheers!

I stand corrected Bugman think you're right on that. Guess the other option would be to drill, thread oversize and put in reducer to 1/8" npt.
