Oil sender

The previous owner had used a piece of piping screwed into
a 'tee', aftermarket oil pressure gauge attached to that.
That pipe snapped while running the engine in my driveway today. Cool oil geyser, put in a bolt for now.
What do you suggest as a place to check oil pressure? I don't think what I have is exactly 'stock'. Are the threads the same in that spot as an 85 engine, with the electrical presure sensor?

Check Racing Beat:

See if they still offer their Oil Pressure and Oil Temperature Adapter -- It's a simple solution, however, it is not usable on '83 to '85 rx-7 oil-to-water coolers...

Mounts directly below the oil filter, and includes all O-rings.

Part# 11801 "'79 and earlier"
Part# 11802 "'80 and later"

(Do NOT include Gauges, senders, or adapter nuts.)

I've installed oil pressure guages on previous rotary cars. Best way is to remove banjo bolt fitting for oil cooling line connection at rear of engine. Drill and tap bolt for 1/8" npt fitting. Install 90 deg. compression elbow into bolt and connect poly or copper tubing to after market guage. Good luck.
