I think you will find they are both non-metric standard pipe thread. You
can hook a second oil pressure guage up in tandem with the factory oil
guage sender with no problem. You will need to buy some little brass
fittings to make a Y-connector. You will not get a good temp reading if you
do that on the temp guage. Best bet is to look for another place to mount
the aftermarket temp sender, like at the front of the engine where there is
often a plug in a hole near the thermostat housing. Be sure to get one on
the "inside" of the thermostat circuit or you will not get the correct
temperature during warm-up.

Due to a config problem, the lists were down for the
past 36 hours. They should now be working. Most of
the postings during this period were lost.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - 1996 F150 Super Cab 4x4 Dual Exhaust system

I am looking for recommendations of suppliers to add a dual exhaust system
to the above P/U. I am looking for increased power for pulling and improved
gas mileage when not pulling. Help?
