Temperature Sensor

Recommended Posts

Anyone know where I can get the temperature sensor in the middle of the sump drain plug. Or a substitute? I broke mine while changing the oil and the dealer says they are backordered and were supose to be in last May! I need to refill the sump!

I added an extra gauge to a classic a few years back (Smith's gauge) and the place I got the gauge from had tons of accessories threaded senders for dozens of applications. Pre-electronics though so that particular place may not help. But if you can get the sendors specs might be a good start.

I've always fancied an oil temp gauge (S3 type maybe - instead of dash clock) - its the best way to know when the engine is properly warmed up, water temp comes up to normal well before oil has much temp in it.

I know the sump plug sensor doesn't work in this application (I've tried it). Anyone with experience of this or ideas please?

Thanks

Jeff
