Mishimoto thermostatic sandwhich - NPT clearance

Anyone out there with the mishimoto thermostatic sandwich plate able to confirm if the NPT ports actually have clearance to use a sender, say oil temp?

By photos looks like the left side is very close to accessory belt and right is very close to oil fill cover.

@Mishimoto

thanks!

Great question here! Sorry for the delayed response. The NPT ports on are sandwich plate are located on each side, which presents a bit of a clearance issue with the compressor/belt and the oil cap. The image below provides some insight into the space available once this is fully installed.



Do keep in mind, this sandwich plate can be clocked in either direction to provide fitment with large aftermarket airbox setups or to fit a sensor. It will depend upon the sensor in question, regarding if the size and shape will be applicable.

During testing we actually use in-line pressure and temperature sensors so the NPT ports are not actually used for R&D purposes. If they were this would be a bit easier to answer.

Any idea what particular sending unit you were going with?

Thanks

-John

@Mishimoto thanks for the response John - will be looking to install a ~1 inch oil temp sender, any thoughts? Photo seems quite tight!

Also, I noticed that the ports already seem to be plugged with Teflon, is that right or are my eyes deceiving me? Just want to check if I need to replug the side I don't intend on using.

I was able to turn my sandwich plate to towards the driver side and squeak in a temp sensor on the AC compressor side port. Its definitely a little disappointing I cant use both side ports.

It is going to be tight, but should fit on the compressor side of the plate. This is after clocking it slightly towards the drivers-side. Unfortunately you will only be able to utilize one of the ports.

Our sandwich plates come with these plugs pre-installed with teflon tape. When you install the sending unit for your gauge, we do recommend using teflon tape or a liquid sealant.

Let us know how it goes!
