Default How to hook up temp sending unit to gauge???

I was wondering if there was a way to run new wires between the temperature sending unit and the gauge. Instead of fishing through the mess of wires under the hood, I would rather just run new ones. Does anyone have or can anyone make up just a cheesey diagram for just the sending unit and gauge?
How many volts is supposed to be supplied to the gauge too?

And yes, I have asked this before.
I just couldn't figure out what wires hook where.

Hey, here's what you do, pull out that electric temp guage and go buy a MANUAL guage. That's what I did to my CJ-5. I pulled out ALL of the electric guages and put in manual guages. The advantages are that manuals are more accurate than electrics, and much more reliable as of which makes them EASY to hook up. No stupid wires to follow or test. A manual temp guage doesn't use a sending unit. That end of it just screws in to where the old sending unit went and ONE thick wire goes to the guage. That's it!

Wire Description:

Purple is the sender wire.
Red with White Stripe is the Gauge Common 12 volt lead from the Fuse Block.
Black is the Gauge Common Ground wire.

Just re-wire point to point... simple as that.
