Poor quality, broke in cylinder head

June 24, 2014
The hole in the center was not drilled straight (was offset to the centerline), and wouldn't allow the sending unit to screw into the adapter. After drilling the hole straight, once I tried to tighten the adapter, it broke off in the head! I had to re-drill and tap the head, which was a HUGE pain in the rear. If I could give this negative stars, I would have.
Pros:
  • none that i can think of
Cons:
  • see above
No, I would not recommend this product.

Perfect part & [...]low cost!

September 30, 2010
This is the only fitting to get from metric to NPT to adapt the water temp gage. If you try to use one of the head ports you will lose an input to the ECM and really screw things up! This solved the problem, Neithor Jegs or Summit had it or could help me with the problem and technical advise to avoid the ECM problem. I would have never figured it out! Thank you!

When screwed into the adapter, how much of the temperature probe on the S-W 280EA sensor is exposed to the water (past the adapter's tread-end)?

Not a lot, maybe 1/4".

This adapter is for the LS series heads to accept 1/8” NPT male senders. It will NOT work with all senders including Stewart Warner senders such as 665-280EA. It can be modified by drilling the adapter to a larger 5/16” or equivalent number size of approximately .312. We do offer a short Autometer sender under part number 1822259 but this is for the short sweep gauges. Below is also notation of fit: IF YOU HAVE A NON-AUTO METER SENDER THAT WILL NOT FIT INTO THE ADAPTER, WE'VE HAD SUCCESS DRILLING OUT THE I.D. OF THE ADAPTER TO ACCEPT THE SENDER. Probe on the Stewart Warner sender would be approximately flush with the end of the adapter.

the adapter end that is screwed into the block is smaller than the pipe end of the sensor therefore the sensor will not stick out of the adapter, of course the sensor only needs the temp from the end, my gauge reads correct and I had to also use another adapter to convert to 1/4 pipe.
