This would be ideal, but you really need the idiot light on there too,
and of course the all important oil pressure gauge :-)
with a Brass Tee, and the sensor in the first Tee (if your running light and
gauge) you get pretty good temperature transfer and very quick reaction to
the guage, just remember, your seeing temps THIS WAY about 20F lower than
whats in the sump.

Oops, brain fade.... 

Should have written, "stuck down into the body of the oil COOLER...."
