When installing the NPT fitting and sensor in the manifold is teflon tape or any other type of sealant recommended/required?Thank you so much for contacting us. You DEFINITELY do not want to use teflon tape. It will impede the sending unit's path to ground and cause the gauge to read low or not at all. The sending unit is brass and the thread is tapered. It should seal up perfectly without any leaks. If you're still concerned, you can use a tiny dab of liquid thread sealant. Hope this helps!Date published: 2018-05-14
My gauge is reading 175 degrees; when I disconnect the wire from the sender it reads about 335 ohms, is this correct for that temperature? I have a 1737 short sweep gauge that reads from 100-250 degreesThank you so much for contacting us. Not totally sure I follow you, but if the actual temperature is 175˚ the sensor should be showing around 230 ohms resistance to ground. A 335 ohm reading would suggest a temperature of around 155 - 160 or so. The higher the temp gets, the lower the resistance the sender outputs. If you're using teflon tape on your sender, it will increase resistance to ground and cause your gauge to read low or not at all. If the gauge lacks an adequate ground or is sharing a ground with the gauge lighting circuit, the gauge will likely read high. Finally, if you're attempting to use an infrared gun as a diagnostic tool for a temp gauge, you should anticipate it reading at least 10 - 15% lower than the gauge as it only measures surface temp, not internal fluid temp. Hope this helps!Date published: 2018-05-14
Can I please ask what the Ohm's range of this sender unit? RodneyHi Rodney, thank you for contacting us. A general overall range is 1123 ohms (+/- 102) at 100 degrees F to 65 ohms (+/- 4) at 250 degrees F.

I purchased and installed kit #2552. I want an additional sender/sensor to monitor temp after the cooler that will work with the same gauge as in the kit. Will the short #2259 or longer #2258 both work/be accurate with the gauge supplied in the kit?Thank you so much for contacting us. While the 2258 and 2259 are identical in terms of function (only the length is different), the gauge is only capable of utilizing one sender. The measurement circuit is resistive and adding another leg to it would cause both senders to read erroneously. Sorry for the bad news.Date published: 2017-12-05
