I THINK all our coolers had straight M10 x 1 threads, but the OE sensors 
that screwed into them had tapered threads. That combination works just 
fine, but the coolers should also work with banjo fittings (straight threads) 
and copper washers, as long as the top surface of the cooler boss is smooth.

Type 3s that came from the factory with dual carbs, used the right hand 
banjo adaptor that you described to get the oil sender out from under the air 
filter crossover pipe.
