Temp gauge, like with numbers? Not sure they came with that. I updated my to degrees with a kit from pelican.

Hey Dave,

I had seen that Pelican Kit as well, I think it was $300 and it had the sender as part of the kit, honestly I’ll probably go that route.

I was just looking for stock at Hershey if I could find a good deal.

The fault is traced to the gauge, wire is good and hooked correctly, put another working sender in and gauge didn’t budge.

I really enjoyed it last year, but will be out of town over Easter so can't make it. Get there early! I sold a ton of gauges and other items and came back a lot lighter which I was very happy about. Whatever you do, don't take bumpers! I had 4 and so did every other person there and not a single one was sold in the parking lot all day! They are made out of aluminum so look to get cash at your local recycler.

Boy and I will be there with some other Potomac/Chesapeake guys in F7-11 for our annual "Sell stuff to Fund the Racing Habit" Event. Mostly Fo-Fo stuff from us but others have some 911/914 stuff. We will have a couple to sets of sport seats for recovering, Fuchs sets, BBS RS set, Turbo Cup mirrors, manual mirrors, manual windows, 2.7L engine, and all kinds of 44 parts we have collected. If there is something specific anybody wants me to bring, please PM.

Oh...and this little gem.
