  1. Overall good fitting product for £27 plus £4 postage from eBay.

    Fitted well in the case and sender. Well made product.

    To be hyper critical the dipstick touches the plate due to its thickness so could do with being slightly thinner to make sure it doesn't foul the dipstick.

    Overall fits well and serves its purpose I would of gone for the M14 version as that has a lip around the sender which I believe would produce more accurate temp results due to deflected air flow.

    But that again is also bring hyper critical.

    If you want a temp sender unit for your type 4 In a better location than then oil pressure relief value this is the item to buy.

  2. You happy with this ? Worked ok? My dip stick sender bugs me.
  3. It is a bit of a half way copy of the Porsche taco plate ... to get accurate results like the Porsche one the temp sender has a cover to stop air flow over it and is at a more sunken angle ....

  5. It still doesn’t put the sender in the correct place tho ....probably plenty good enough ...

    it is slightly different , if you look in the case where it goes you will see what I mean .
    The above one also has a cover ....but I`m splitting hairs .
