Once upon a time

I needed fittings which could couple with the bmw auto tranny stock fittings, for a remote cooler. I went all over the place, even to a special hydraulics shop. None of them could get me anything.

as for the Water temperature and oil temperature stuff, remove a bolt from the system, or a sensor, and take it with you, so you can compare threads.

Best of luck, let us know how it goes, I wanna get some gauges myself..

I believe the oil pressure fitting is M12x1.5. From that you can find one with an NPT female fitting which should fit something that came with your kit. You can order it here
part# 32MM-12-2

For water temp you can get a barbed T fitting and cut into the line that goes from the thermostat to the TB. Get it as close to the Tstat as possible.
