temp gauge

looking for a sender to put in a water temp gauge.
anyone know a good place to buy one?

i heard there was some that would install where the idiot light sensor is on the motor...that is what i'd like to use.

thanks

here is the one I have

Equus WATER TEMPERATURE GAUGE WITH 4-COLOR ILLUMINATION : JC Whitney: Auto Parts & Accessories

if the sensor provided does not fit the stock location then call Doug at Goblin Offroad or just get the whole thing from him.

I bought my temp gauge from Weller. It came with a plate for the dash, autometer gauge, sender and a nice wiring harness. It made it a breeze to install.

Stock location, and ground the stock pigtail so the idiot light stays off.

I bought a set up from BPR - Auto meter gauge and the inline hose sending unit -anyways my gauge will only read up to 160 and thats it.

it stops there. what is wrong? it has a good ground aswell and everything seems to be hooked up right.

Cant we all get along? lol

Well then why add a gauge??? No need for an idiot light that tells you it is overtemped , when if you have a gauge you see it coming, which is the point Terry. LOL

Kyle,, I would say the sensor is not matched to the gauge, ohms may be off. this has happened several times with BRP setups. Does the ground go to the motor where the Batt ground is connected??? if not try it there first and see if it changes.

Normal seems to be around 180-190 for the rhinos.

it is gounded to where my surepower battery seperator is gounded. BPR is suppost to call me and send me out a new set up.
I even tried putting a second ground on it - there is a spot on the in line that you screw in a small all thread with a nut to gound the in line part.

Cant we all get along? lol

well if they have not sent it yet, try this, remove the ground wire from sensor and get a small hose clamp and clamp it to the body of the inline tube you put in and see if it changes. this would be a temp trial fix. if no change then I would still assume the sensor is wrong.
