Just a guess. I know some go in place of the drain plug (vdo anyway). It doesn't say anything in the instructions? I would like to know, too, because my Autometer oil temp gauge will be here soon....

I'll peruse my bentley, see if I can find a suitable spot???? better yet, ask in the 8v forum. Bigger base of people to ask, someone's got to know. Also, more activity over there

why dont you put it where the stock oil temp sender is? On the oil filter bracket.

don't know how much bigger it is than the stock plugs in the oil filter bracket, but you could always pull it off 7 drill & tap it to the needed size, flush the chips out & put it back on.

Does the fitting on the end unscrew into 2 pieces? Try unscrewing the larger diameter piece and use the smaller diameter one.

Yes its the Mechcanical one! Oil Temp Gauge.
I looks like it needs that bigger part to keep the sendor tip from moving!

I used the spot for the stock oil temp sensor. (but I used the elec. gauge not the mech.)
