    Do I have the wrong EGT Fitting???? PLEASE LOOK

    I bought an open box GREDDY Elct EGT Gauge and it came with this fitting....

    http://www.hksusa.com/images/?id=1369

    When I insert the probe into the fitting it does not lock in.

    I looked at the Greddy Website and they have a part # E.G.T. SENSOR FITTING use with 16401302 16400003 $25.00

    But Im afraid to buy it because it may be the same one.

    Any thoughts????

    Thanks.

    well where are you installing it??? if its in the uppipe i cant help you out there (cant remember what size that is) plus i dont recommend putting it there....i alos have a Greddy EGT gauge and it came with a 1/8" MPT (male pipe thread) fitting...where i suggest installing it is either in the #1,3 or #2,4 exhaust manifold to get more accurate readings...that requires drilling and tapping (a shop could do that for you for no more than $40)

    there should be a crush washer included with the probe fitting. when you screw the fitting into the manifold and squeeze the whole setup closed with a wrench, it will crush the crush washer and lock the probe in place.
    right now it should slide through the fitting smoothly, fitting flush, right? when you close it down the washer will crush and lock it in place.

    p.s. for what its worth, i used a generic setup that i got at the hardware store for $.69 and its worked for about 6 months now.
