    guys,
    Anyone used a sandwich plate to give extra sensor mounting options? I ordered one for $20, just wondering if there are any pitfalls with them other than “yet another” potential leak path? Intention is to pull oil pressure and temperature back to gauges.
    Getting closer every day to firing Alfies heart up,

    I have them for oil takeoff to heat the gas converters on lpg.system.
    No problems.

    Only issue has been idiots at ENZED who put wrong fittings on hoses.
    Unrelated to plates but relevent if having fittings made up .

    My advice is to buy one with an inbuilt thermostat otherwise you can struggle with getting a reasonible oil temp
