I'm pretty sure it is just 1/4" or 3/8 plumbing fittings.

Do you know what was good about the good old days? I wasn't good, And I wasn't old!

Senators and Congressman should wear uniforms like NASCAR drivers so we could identify their corporate sponsors....

all fixed....and better

  • picked up the oil sensor at autozone for 18 bucks plus tax
  • purchased brass "T" fitting at Lowes in thier plumbing section for 5 bucks
  • some Teflon plumbers tape
  • and finally a drop or two of poor-mans "loctite" (superglue) on the threads

works perfect!

and as a bonus, that darn twitching gas gauge works perfect also.

thanks to all on this thread, it would not have been possible without your help
