OK im still struggling to find a good spot for my sender. I decided to drill and tap the top cover on the hpop reservoir. Easy take the cover off and Im done. Further inspection found a problem. I cant access two of the torx bolts because of the bloody fuel bowl.



Now can I undo the two bolts that hold the fuel bowl on to move it that little bit I need. And are these the bolts.



or do I have to undo all the fuel lines as well. Also when I undo all the top cover bolts is the whole hpop reservoir going to be loose. I mean will the fuel bowl being unsupported, move the reservoir.

That should work fine. Those two bolts are all that hold the bowl on. You will not lose oil out of them.

If you have to remove the 13mil bolts to move the top cover to the HPOP res, then yes the HPOP res will be unsecured from the front cover.

If all you have to remove is the torx bolts to remove the top cover of the HPOP res, then the rest of the res should stay there, no issues.

Thought about that. I do have a adapter to fit that thread but I dont think the reading will be accurate. The probe on the sender has to be flushed with oil to read right.

To be accurate it must be in the "flow" of oil. If not you will not see changes in temp... You can run adapters on pressure gauges, but temp gauges need to be in the fluid, and in the main flow. If not, you may get a reading, but it will be extremely slow to react.

If that is the 1/8 NPT pressure port where the engine meets the bellhousing you are good to go.

Have you considered a scan gauge?

If that don't work out you might take a look at 'em.
Wont suit my set up in cab. I have three gauges on the pillar mount and three on my overhead console all of the same brand. Stewart Warner.
