YM1500 oil pressure gauge fitting size

Postby Hnewman144 » Mon Feb 12, 2018 1:52 pm

I have a Ym1500 that I'm finally about to tear down and figure out why it's burning oil. I want to check the oil pressure before I do so. It sure would suck to throw a set of rings, rod bearings and pistons in it only to find out it has no oil pressure. Here's the deal, Im wanting to tear down this evening and figure out what all I've got to have so I can get parts ordered and to me by the weekend. So I don't have time to order an engine oil pressure switch adapter for my gauge and have it shipped from hoye. Can any one tell me the size adapter I need to screw into the block to check the oil pressure? Thanks!

The threads in your engine are 1/8" BSP threads
