Hi there James
hoping not to misunderstand your original query
I came across the drawing for the stuffing box installed on the propeller shaft - see attachment
matches perfectly the original as mounted on Maramu 116
concerning the engine block oïl pressure tap, I fitted the old one but did not check the size;
if stuck, I will take it out & check threads ...

Thanks for the information on the 4.154 sender and especially for confirming the NPT threads. I will just add a few adaptors to my install kit and should be all set. I have ordered from Parts4engines.com and have been very happy with what I received and the quick response time.
I repacked Sueño’s stuffing box last summer and the 5/16” was the correct size. I think that the packing size is normally determined by the shaft diameter so I assume that yours should take the same size too.
