Crush washer for oil pressure sender

Recommended Posts

Continuing with my engine rebuild, 88 Stevens….can’t remember if the oil pressure sender screws into the block with or without a copper crush washer. Parts manual doesn’t mention one. Anyone enlighten me. Thanks.

Hi Gavin! You aren't only crazy (for owning an Esprit) but you must be blind, too! 😁😇

<just kidding>


The oil temp switch on our USA car shows a Dowty washer sealing it.  Sheet 17.06A #14 of the 88 - 92 parts list.

17.07A # 22 has a notation on the oil sender to use Permabond A131 to seal between the sender and block.

🧐Missed the * on item 22 17.07A.  Can’t be too crazy as I already used a little Hylomar AF on the threads 😉 . However, Sometimes I think I am totally bananas for owning two Esprits. Frustrations out the Yin Yang. 

Thanks for the help 👍
