Stuck Oil Pressure sender

Recommended Posts

On my MKII Spitfire I'm trying to remove the Oil Pressure Sender so I can stack it with an adaptor to take a mechanical oil pressure gauge take off.

The previous fitter has over tightened it and I'm stuck. Its an awkward fit  - I've removed engine side panel &  oil filter, but spanners still seem to foul dizzy mount, & fuel pump. Short of hacksawing off the sender part and banging on a socket I'm stuck - It seems to be a 13mm collar but approaching at the angles possible I'm rounding off the shoulders.

 

Am I missing something? - opposite threads? - has the wrong size sender been fitted? Is there a spanner with a flexy open end to angle the shaft slightly so I can hit the bloody thing.

If you've been here and remember what you did - please let me know.

Ok - sorted - by placing two spanners side by side @ 10 to 4 I finally got it shifted ... now to all you ol' grease monkeys this is probably simple stuff - but to an engineering numpty like me - this appliance of the old grey matter is something of a mini triumph !
