1/8 BSPT adapter for oil pressure sensor
So, I bought a oil pressure switch from an AE92 to fit Oil-P warning light. It's also 1/8BSPT as the original sensor in the AE86.

Since I want to keep the original sensor also,I wanted to buy a T piece with 1x male 2x female 1/8 bspt.
But it seems impossible to find it. Confused
Anyone knows where to buy it?

Or,
- Can I fit 1/8 BSP onto BSPT? Is the thread in the Engine BSP or BSPT? I could find Y piece with 3x 1/8 BSP.
- Many T pieces are 1/8BSPT male and 1/8BSP + 1/8 NPT female.
But than I can not find a adapter from 1/8NPT to 1/8 BSPT.

Any help/advice is welcome.

Thanks already.

Do not put those straight to the block, because it could crack easily.

Go to the hydraulic shop and ask them to make you a 30-40cm long teflon hose with male ends. Put that in the block.
Then 3xfemale T-piece and put it next to the hose and put sensors to it.

That's looks good.
And indeed two sensors straight on the block might be to heavy and crack.
I will copy your layout, with you permission :wink:

Than one question I have:
The female side is PSB or also BSPT? (T piece)
If I use BSP it will seal on the BSPT male by itself?


Thanks a lot.
