And on a side note....where can I put the sender for my mechanical oil pressure gauge?
[/ QUOTE ]1. Buy some Permatex Black sealant.
2. Remove the top radiator hose from the thermostat housing.
3. Clean the thermostat housing hose bib and inside of the radiator hose.
4. Lay down two 1/18" wide, 1/16" thick by 2"long beads of Permatex, 1/16" apart, parallel to each other
5. When the sealant is cured drop the sender down into thermostat housing so the sender is just resting above the thermostat.
6. Lay the capillary tube down in between the Permatex lines and smear a little sealant over the capillary tube.
7. When cured, gently push the radiator hose back into place and
8. Reseal the hose with TWO wide radiator hose clamps. Do NOT use the wire type you have to remove with water pump pliers.
9. The clamps will put pressure on the Sealant and seal against the capillary tube.
10. Be careful not to crush the sender's capillary tube, it will seal without that much pressure applied.
11. Use tie wraps to tie the sender capillary tube to the radiator support rod.
13. You're done.
14. Send me money so I can take my family our for root-beer floats!
15. If you don't have my address, take your family out for root-beer floats!
