Can't get near mine as it's tucked up for winter but here's a couple of photos from a google search.

I have a deep sump on my bus, so I drilled and tapped it at the front, no issue with maintenance or cabling problems

Neat solution redstar5, unfortunately my engine doesn't have the blanking plate

I did get a few spare blanking plates cut when I did mine, they are from 5mm stainless with an 8.5mm hole in the middle, I could tap them M10 if required.
PM me if you want one, I'll just need to cover the postage and packing cost
Cheers

I know it's a few years ago but do you by any chance have any of these plates still available, thanks.

I have a thermocouple attached to my dipstick which then goes into sump. Can’t think of a better way to do it.

Involved a bit of drilling dremelling on the dipstick but works really well.

I’m using one of the dual aircraft certified gauges that VWJim sells http://www.vwjim.co.uk/ourshop/prod_123 ... Gauge.html

What make are they? Can’t see a makers name or brand.

Westach - got a spare dual oil pressure/temp gauge knocking around somewhere in the workshop. Will need a thermocouple which is available from Jim or Westach, but if you want it PM me and we can work something out.

Cheers
