I bought a Banks pyro from a friend last year and had it on my NA 7.3 IDI until yesterday. Since I'm gonna be towing our 5er with the PSD, I want it to have the pyro. I went looking for a bung (since it didn't come with one) but found that the probe threads aren't 1/4" NPT. They are smaller, but bigger than 1/8".

Any idea where I can get something that will work? We're going camping this weekend, so ordering really isn't an option.


Thanks!

You will have to take the probe somewhere to find out what threads it is. I wouldn't worry about a bung I would just drill and tap the manifold. I would think the threads would be npt threads because it is the same a pipe plug, that is what I have used to seal up the holes on previous trucks.
Good luck

If the probe nut had outside threads, I could have tapped the manifold tonight. Unfortunately, it has inside threads. I need a bung to screw it onto, not into.

Wierd, I haven't seen that before hopefully somone will chime in. I haven't seen a bung that will work for that either.

I have a banks egt gauge but it didn't come with the probe and wiring. I just bought an autometer probe kit for 30 bucks. It comes with the standard 1/8" NPT bung. If you call tech support at Banks they might give you that info.

Found one at the local NAPA for truck parts.. They didn't sell it separate, but with the probe.. I bought the whole deal.. Gauge, cable and probe. Only $105

Probably missing one part, I just installed one in mine - 1/8" pipe thread in the manifold, probe mounted in a small part that screwed into the above hole and had a nut that screwed onto the "adapter" (for lack of a better word).
