Did the drilling today. Used the engine running and grease on the bits routine. Do wear a face shield when you do this. Hoot, thanks for you article. Your suggestion to use the "R" bit for 1/8 NPT was appreciated.

I use the "R" drill from my Starrett Tap and Drill chart.

For 1/8-27, the "R" drill makes it a little easier to tap the hole and is called out on all charts I have seen.

"R" is .339"
5/16 is .3125"

Not really a big dif and either should work fine though.

It was hard to start with the 5/16. I think the larger diameter of the "R" would have been the ticket.

I first drilled to 5/16 but found it too hard to start the tap so went with the R and then it was easy.

I thought this might be a good place to ask the following question. I have a short Isspro probe installed per the directions above. The shop that tapped it for me did it on a slight downward angle, which put the probe at an angle that made it a little on the long side to fit properly. I ended up installing a coupler to extend the fitting out a half inch so the probe would fit. Are the following temps normal at 50 degrees ambient temperature?


Idle in driveway: 270-280


Coasting down hill: 125-150


Hard acceleration up hill: 900


All these are plus or minus. Just want to see if the extra coupler is dragging the temp at the sensor down somewhat.


Thanks.

hoot,


I finally completed the gauge install too! Seems I got stuck in front of my screen instead of bein in the garage.


Thanks for the details, having it sure put my mind at ease when messin with this big dollar truck. The fear of the unkown flees when armed with great stuff like this!!


I was waiting for gauges to start using the higher Quad tunes but now I think I might want to wait for the Suncoast upgrade first????


Gratefully,
