VDO Oil pressure adapter

Does anyone have an online source for the 5 - 1/8 F50G-S Adapter fitting from Parker Hydraulics? Thanks.

Chris - I couldnt find that part when I went looking, so I pulled the old sender, punched out the center, and a local hyrdraulics shop welded an adapter onto the old sender core - it works like dream and cost less than 10 bucks.

I think I found a fitting (maybe it was a similar temp sender) with the same outside dia thread and drilled and tapped the inner thread. They're brass, so easy to do.

Still haven't sorted out a source. Just hate to drill out a good pressure sensor.

or, even easier, take out the plug bolt that's in the second hole on the oil pump... drill it out and tap the threads, then put it back in.

Cost $0 if you have a drill press and a tap set. That's what I did & it works great.

Austin area source

I bought my #5 o-ring boss to 1/4" NTP adapter from Capitol Bearing, www.capitolbearing.com, in Round Rock. Then I bought a 1/4" to 1/8" bushing. The part number for the straight adapter is 2216-4-5s. The FAQ indicates they will ship parts.
