Oil Temp

In the last post, I mentioned the need to modify the Hisso oil screen plug to accommodate the oil temperature bulb. I was going to do some welding but Mike Damiami e-mailed me with a suggestion.

He mentioned the availability of an oil temperature probe adapter sold by Aircraft Spruce. I ran over there and Mike was right. The adapter fit perfectly!

Mike, by the way is a Tech Rep for Lycoming in Williamsport, PA. When he is not working, he spends most of his free time tinkering with the old engines and airplanes at the Golden Age Air Museum. I appreciate the tip, Mike!
