Water Temp gauge install

So i saw Sketch's install DIY, and I understand everything, but except where the new sensor goes... I'm having trouble locating it, so please let me know if you have any idea... a picture would be great. I read that this mod causes the factory temp gauge not to work. Is this true? That's fine with me, but what is an appropriate running temperature to look for once it's in.

Re: Water Temp gauge install

factory gauge works,but reads-cold,warm,hot.
I broke my autometer one off into the block,so im using an radiator adapter hose;SO my dash reads little less than half and my autometer gauge reads 180-210(some is engine heat)

heres where it would go,beore i snapped it off,and tryed JB weldng the head back onto ease it out sealing it shut..ha doh

OK... so is it in the same place on the J30a..I only say that because we have different motors, because I see your distributor cap there.

^ Point is... grab a damn Haynes manual. What else do you want to hear? What exactly is your questions at hand now? As far as us showing you pics, you may have better luck on V6P, since there are more J-series guys on there, or just PM a member who you know has done work on their J-series on this site. Waiting in this thread may take way longer if you choose not to do the things mentioned above.
