I've got Mike Forte's 400 HP 351W. The oil pan is stock and doesn't have a separate bong for the temp. sensor.

For those of you who've used Autometer Vintage gauges, is there any problem with using the threaded adapter sleeve they provide with the gauge to install the oil temperature sensor in place of the oil pan drain plug?

I was wondering whether the wiring and connecter protrude so far down toward the ground that they might be vulnerable to being broken or knocked off from road hazards ?

Jeff,

Great you jumped in. I was wondering today about access to the oil filter and whether to leave it original or relocate with the kit parts. What did you do?

After you add the plate from Mike, will you still have enough room to get the filter on and off without buggering up the frame?
