Got it installed. No wondering or guessing anymore. cheers Even got a blue light to match the dash lights. Anyone tell me when their fan kicks off and on by there gauge temp? Mine is kicking on right at 180 deg. and fan kicks off at 170 deg.

Install was easy Chris. Wired up to 12V acc. plug so light comes on all the time. You will need a 2 5/8" hole saw for the dash cut out. Here is where I got it. http://www.amazon.com/Equus-8462-Electric-Water-Temperature/dp/B000EVYILW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=automotive&qid=1221011392&sr=1-1

Pretty much the same cycles for me too Marty, but with the TCP shroud, the fan only cycles on for about 30 seconds or less. I wired mine to a switch powered by my fuse block. Sweet bro!!! allright

Hey yank,

Are you sure that thing is large enough? Your eyes are not as good as they used to be. That might be hard to see. :(lmao:

It looks really good Marty. I would like one smaller. I only have so much room left in that little square.

Marty, did you have to install a sender for this guage or were you able to hook it up to the existing one?

No, I had to install a new sender. They are not compatable. Grounded the factory wire to the frame to keep the idiot light out.

This gauge is down to $16 at Amazon now. It is a steal. I would highly recommend it. Acurate and waterproof.

Does that guage price include all you need to run the guage(guage, sender, wiring, bulb, etc.) or is it just for the guage?
