Moroso oil pan hole size in kickout?

I've just installed a Moroso #21803 pan and there's an open threaded hole in the kickout on the side of the drain plug. I presume this is for an oil temp sender? I'm already using the port above the filter for oil temp, so will need to plug this hole in the pan. Can anyone tell me what size plug I'll need to order? I've tried e-mailing Moroso, but didn't get a response and tried calling them, but couldn't get through after 15 mins on hold.

FWIW out of curiosity I looked at Summits website for MOR-21803 and got nothing. Saw a 21308 and on its instructions it notes a threaded hole used for a dipstick adapter(1/4"NPT).

This is the one...

I think it's discontinued since it's not on the Moroso site. I got mine as new old stock. Pretty tough to find a 1pc low-profile pan.

Try the hardware store..most likely it is a common pipe size like 1/4 npt or maybe 3/8 npt.. my local store has lots of those kinds of pluge in either brass or steel..

I'm in the UK where we're metric (mostly), so 'imperial' sizes have to be ordered-in specially. The hole ID measures around .720", but I'm not sure what that corellates to in terms of plug size... 11/16? Doesn't sound right.

That size sounds close to 3/8 pipe size but oh well..in your case then pick up a pipe tap of an appropriate siz and a plug..rethread to meet the size of plug and hole and screw it in with some pipe sealer and done deal...We have those kind of details to fix on our hotrods on a regular basis here..the alternative if you are never foing to use that hole is to just weld a piece of metal on the inside of the pan to close off the unused hole..

??? Npt

Hey Man, Like your car. I think you'll find that its 1/2 NPT threads. If you have a thread pitch gauge(US standard) look for 14 TPI. The pan on my boat engine has the extra holes for sensors and I'm almost sure they are 1/2"NPT. Your measurement sounds real close;http://www.engineeringtoolbox.com/np...ads-d_750.html
Try a 1/2" NPT plug in it, you may be able to find one in your part of the world. olnolan

National Pipe Thread (NPT) is an international standard tapered thread, you shouldn't have to order it. There is no metric equivalent although there are other kind of tapered threads.

Have you asked for these type of pipe plugs locally?

You're the man! V.useful chart... looking at that, you're right, it has to be 1/2" NPT. I'll get one sorted.

Thanks!
