Need Help!

I installed a pyro gauge in my 2000 F-250 and when I drilled and tapped the hole in the exhaust manifold I did it too big. It is supposed to be 1/8 inch NPT I did 1/4 NPT. Is it a problem if i use a brass sleeve to go from 1/4 to 1/8 inch? The gauges are Autometer Z-Series

Thanks a lot

No problem... use a little thread lock on the sleeve and then some antiseeze on the pyro... Try not to get the sleeve all the way into the manifold, it will block some flow...

Thanks, I didnt know if having the brass sleeve would affect the sensors proformance, because I thought the sensor needed to be centered in the pipe. Thanks,
