One of the single most important factors in determining how your engine performs (and how long it performs between rebuilds) is proper oil temperature during operation. Knowing your exact temp allows you to make sure you’ve got the proper oil weight and cooling capacity. Utilizing AutoMeter’s ultra precise bourdon tube meter movement, you can be assured of the most accurate possible readings of the life blood of your engine. A 6’ capillary tube and 1/2” NPT mounting nut are included.

Milodon stock replacement oil pan, small block ford. There is not a temp "bung". Can oil drain hole be adapted and used? What is a normal oil temp for stock engine? Thank you

Asked by: Sport Coupe
Thank you for your question. While we can’t tell you what is normal for that vehicle the temp probe is recommended to be installed in a port and not the oil drain plug. With it being a mechanical gauge, failure can happen with the probe being constantly removed along with the threads to seal the probe in its location.

I have this gauge (201008) on a Cobra and notice today that the oil temp is not registering. I see in a previous question that this unit has a sealed line, so I can't simply replace the sending unit. Can you tell me what the cost is for servicing it?

Asked by: Hondo
Hi Hondo, thank you for the question. That is correct, a mechanical gauge line is not serviceable or replaceable in the field. There is no flat fee, but we won't charge you to evaluate it and give you an estimate if you send the gauge in to us. While this form isn't required, it will give you details on sending it in and what's required:

I have this gauge (201008) on a Cobra and the probe is broken. Do you have it in replacement ? What reference?

Asked by: NICOLAS
Hi Nicolas, thank you for connecting with us. Our mechanical gauges feature a sealed temperature line and probe that is filled with ether during the production process. If the line or probe even breaks, the gauge will either have to come back to us for service or the entire gauge must be replaced.
