Oil temperature sensor location

Recommended Posts

Ok all - have done a bit of research and there are mixed views on this so thought I would canvas your good selves.

I am looking at installing an oil temperature sensor as I believe currently the map and subsequent output to the Toucan unit in place is just set at 120ºC

I have an oil pressure sensor installed at the galley point top front of engine under the alternator (Accessed to sort a leak)

I have access to the galley point rear of engine under the turbo (Accessed to sort another leak) and can install one there

I will also be installing a sandwich plate for an oil cooler which could take an oil and or pressure sensor in the not too distant future.

I dont intend modifying the sump to fit one there

So peoples opinions on best place to take off an oil temperature reading

Cheers

Rear galley that's what everyone recommends ,that's what I did.
Cause people says that this is the most hot point in the engine.

Bung above cylinder no 3 ,is definitely the best place for oil temp readings,  the one behind the alternator is normally where oil pressure sensor is fitted bud
