A while ago I fitted a mishimoto oil sandwich plate to help warm my oil up a bit quicker, and keep it warmer during road driving. It worked a treat, but the BSP oil fittings used by Lotus and the AN fittings that the rest of the world now uses was difficult to join together. I ended up with a series of adaptors which works, but are a little large and so clearance to the firewall is a bit tight.

A chap has been in touch about getting some made up, and he's looking to satisfy a minimum order. He's collecting names here if anyone is interested:https://forums.seloc.org/viewthread.php?tid=476414

What sizes are the AN and BSP threads?

Also what gender does the adapter need to be on either end?

It's 5/8 BSP male to M20 male if I remember right.

Mishimoto do M20 to XXX AN adaptors to suit most modern setups.

This is what I had cobbled together:
