Hi all
Can anyone help with the position of an additional oil temperature sensor on the engine
Where would it mount ?
Is there any pre prepared mounting point?

Usual place is the sump plug.
You get a special one with a sender.
However, that is not the most accurate location for temps apparently.

You can buy a temp sensor to replace the sump plug like this one ... -9000.html

I use a sandwich plate between the oil filter and its housing, you then have the option to fit oil temperature and pressure sensors. The sump plug sensor type is a little exposed.
