Re: Temp. gauge
I was going to try to find an off-the-shelf (OTS) temp sender/gauge set where the sensor element was slim enough to slip into the OE sender hole. Then solve the fitting 'issue' by using a brass fitting of smae external dimesions/threads as the OE sender, then bore out and rethread inside to accept OTS fittings. (Plan B is JB Weld the fit-up together if the fittings prove too much a challenge/undoable.)
Don't know if this hare-brained idea will work, but until I get the OE temp/gas gauges 'fixed', at least it'll give me my temp reading (I hope).
Had not thought about the ports Mr. Strenk suggested... Those are promising ideas. Wonder how hard they are to get to w/ manifolds on and engine in Jeep? Those plugs might be a real PITA to get out too...
Looking forward to more ideas...
