Has anyone fitted of these?

I bought one of these off eBay so I can add a oil pressure gauge but you can see from the photos the thread from the block is not long enough to engage the thread on the sandwhich plate

Hi it looks long enough to me but well thats phots for you inside the thread is an allen key hole you may be able to unwind it enough to fit it but i would be careful as you need to leave enough thread so it doesn't come off personally i would send it back as it looks like a bodge to me get an oil pressure switch from a frontera sport it has both the light and the guage connections and screws into the existing pressure switch hole
regards

remove the one fitted to your engine and get one from either a c20xe astra or x17dtl astra,one thing i have noticed will the oil pressure be affected as you have blanked the oil cooler ports?

the bolt from vauxhall bolts through the sandwich plate and leaves a threaded section for the oil filter to screw on,also fit a new o ring
