Shop OIL DRAIN PLUG

OIL DRAIN PLUG FOR OIL TEMP SENDER 924S / 944 ALL / 968 / 928 / 911



One question we get fairly often from customers who start to track their 944s is... "Where do I install a oil temperature gauge sender in my oil pan?"

Until now, the answer was one they didn't want to hear. If you drill a hole in your oil pan to thread for a sending unit, you will certainly get metal shavings in the pan and that can spell disaster. Aluminum or not.

The oil pan in our opinion is not thick enough to just drill and tap, and should have some additional metal in the form of a patch welded in place to the sensor location area to thicken the pan first. If the pan is off the car, then you have no worries.

We have heard of people mounting the sending unit in the turbo oil drain banjo bolt, but that gives you false temperatures. Your boost level, and whether or not you're running a dry or wet turbo can swing that oil temperature coming out of the turbo. That temperature reading from the actual oil in the base of the pan is what we want to know, and the further from the turbo the better. It's like mixing hot and cold water from your faucet.

You could mount it in your oil level sending unit location, on 1987 and later cars, at the sacrifice of knowing your oil level is down when driving or racing. Not the best solution, but could be worse.

We have told plenty of people to drill and tap their oil drain plug for the sender. You will of course lose the magnet in the plug which keeps metal shavings collected from wearing parts such as rings from the cylinders walls and other crucial areas of the engine.

The natural solution was to build an oil drain plug that incorporates both a powerful magnet and a pre-tapped 1/8" NPT (National Pipe Thread) hole for a oil temperature sending unit. This makes the task of installing the sending unit in your car as easy as it can get!

NOTE: Some sending units are larger then 1/8" NPT. This oil drain plug only works with sending units for 1/8" NPT threaded holes. Check with your gauge supplier to make sure your getting a gauge that is compatible. Usually this means a electric versus mechanical gauge, and sometimes a half sweep versus a full sweep style.

The magnet on this drain plug is a very powerful Neodymium disc measuring 1/2" in diameter. Not only is it much more powerful than the stock magnet, it has a far greater amount of surface area to collect debris.



Drain Plug shown with temperature sender installed but not included. They come with the gauges sold separately. Drain Plug sealing ring and 1/8 NPT Plug included.

Since Porsche used the drain plug on the 944 series engines on other models and years or engines, you'll be happy to hear that if you have a 911 or 928!

INTERNATIONAL ORDERING



TO OUR INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS:


In the past, we have used a separate order form for placing International orders. We have quit using that process and are requiring all customer to use the shopping cart system built into the web site and it's check out process.

If you simply want a quotation and are not ready to place an order, then cut and paste the contents of your shopping basket, take a screen shot of the basket, or make a list of items and send us a email requesting a quotation with shipping.

If you need shipping prices before you make your final decision to purchase, then you should request that quotation by email and not use the shopping cart checkout process because you will be paying for the parts at that time.

Since our shopping cart and shipping estimator will "NOT" correctly calculate shipping charges on International Orders, we have it set-up to where the shipping will be Zero Dollars ($0.00) when checking out. When the shopping carts address process learns you are not in the United States by selecting your particular country, that's when it switches to equal Zero. That does NOT mean shipping is free.

Upon completion of the check out process, you will have paid for your parts but NOT the shipping on those parts.

Once we look over your parts ordered and calculate shipping weights and box sizes, we will send you an E-Mail with at least one shipping option and maybe several. We utilize UPS, DHL and the United States Postal Service (USPS) to deliver your parts.

Once you pick a shipping carrier and agree to the quotation by returning the E-Mail, we will be sending a PayPal money request for the amount of the shipping to be collected. If the parts are expected to be shipping out quickly, then you may receive that email quickly. If the parts are going to need to be built or something is on back order from the list of parts, we may hold off sending that E-Mail until we have the shipment ready to go. It can vary from order to order as to how we do that. If you think you should be hearing from us quickly, but you don't, feel free to contact us.

If you have special shipping needs or requirements, during the checkout you will see a SPECIAL ORDER INSTRUCTIONS window. Enter that special information there.

A good bit of our business is International and we have been taking care of those valued customers since 1999.
