I have a oil temp sensor that was supposed to fit in the oil pan and then I was to hook up the wire.Changed the oil went to screw the plug in and it is the wrong size.Called about 10 Lotus dealerships and not one service department has never heard of doing it that way.The told me to drill a hole in the pan and weld the sensor in or buy a after market pan that has the connection on it.The sensor came with the car when I purchased it and the gentleman said that it was the right one,someone sold him the wrong sensor.How is everyone connecting these temp gauges up.
The gauge is a Pro Comp.Any help would be great.
Thanks...

I did the sandwich plate with adapters. There is some information in previous threads here about the actual part numbers.

I added a T to the factory oil pressure sensor location and installed my temp sensor in my moroso pan. I did need an adapter though for the pan as it was threaded differently.
