Oil pressure switch thread?

#1
Hi all. anyone know what daft thread the oil pressure switch is on the 2000SC? Thought most were 1/8BSP, but not this one. Wanting to make a 't' for a pressure gauge so need to buy a tap and die to do it. Same size as 1/8 BSP but coarser thread, seems to be around 18tpi. Cheers, Rob

Found out what thread the switch is. Rover had to be awkward and not use the standard ones of 1/8BSP or 1/4BSP but decided to have a bottle of wine first and then use 3/8 BSF. Used on both 2000 engines, but not the V8. Now I know which tap and die to scrounge.

There’s a plug on the side of the block you can remove and add a port for a pressure gauge too. Might be easier than a T piece.

Only daft if you don't have the tap; Inspired choice if you do. ;)
If you have the BSP tap, you could put a V8 in to suit your tap!

Good luck....

Have a V8 sat in the corner of the workshop we had as a spare for our TR7 rally car. If this motor causes much more grief, guess what?

Did I ask the wrong question?

Hi, Yes, kinda. It was an attempt at humour. I thought the next question would be. Which side is the RH side? Now, whilst you may know that a lot of people don't, it's surprising. This is one of those occasions when posting while drinking is not advised. So, my apologies.

Hi, Yes, near and off side is a distinctive British term referring to the position in relation to the kerb. Both my father and myself worked for London Transport and it was the only distinction used so it's ingrained.
