For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

Tapping Water Pump for Temp Sender

Post  Bluemach1 on Sun Aug 21, 2011 7:32 pm

Does anyone have detail on the best location to tap the water pump for the porsche water temp sender? There is the nice flat spot right on top of the water pump but feeling around inside the water passage it feels like the sender might need to tapped at an offset rather than directly in the middle of that spot.

Also, how thick is the material in that spot? How many threads can I expect to get? I am concerned that it might be too thin and strip easily. Tap will be M14x1.5

Center punch, then drill a 1/2" dia. hole, then tap it carefully. Use 4-5 rotations of Teflon tape on sender. The thickness is about 1/4 to 5/16 inch there.
