The temperature sender may interfere with some repro strainers – they can be drilled / clearanced.

If being used on a Type 4 engine the pressed steel blanking plate to the rear of the engine can be drilled if the existing sump plug is not a compatible thread.

The oil pressure sensor will require a short brake hose to allow it to fit remotely due to tinware clearance issues.

VW Brakes hose are M10x1 which is the same thread size as oil pressure sensors.

I would like to fit this kit to my 75 Bus with a Type 4 engine.
Can you let know about mods and strainer plate, please

We have updated the description to include the following about Type 4 engine fitment to make it clearer, it should show on the website shortly; Sump may need drilling and tapping for some Type 4 engines - check size as M12 & M14 sizes were used at various times. This kit includes an M14x1.5 temperature sender. Type 4 engine tinware will obstruct the oil pressure sender unless modified.
