Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should be an option when ordering a gauge This was exactly what was needed to fit in the tight fitting for my oil temperature gauge. Only complaint is it should have been an option when ordering the gauge.

I have a th400, which temperature sensor should I use?

Asked by: Roko
All of our gauges come with the proper sending unit. All of electric temperature sensors are 1/8 NPT and should work for your TH400.

I have a transmission gauge 8457 for my 1997 F350 with an E40D trans. What temp.sender will i need to install it in the port on the drivers side of the trans?

Asked by: Merl
The 8457 gauge comes with the required p/n 2252 sending unit. The 2252 sending unit is 1/8 NPT and should have no problem working with your transmission.

Hi, What is meant by a Short Sweep sensor please? Ta

Asked by: RC_Modeller
This means the sender is the correct one for our short sweep "air core" gauges, in which the pointer has a 90 degree sweep.

I'd like to purchase the C2 Stepper Motor Water Temp Gauge. But the 2252 sensor will restrict the coolant flow in the radiator hose. When I purchase the gauge, can I substitute this shallow depth sensor???

Asked by: Valyrie
The 2259 sender is for use only with our short sweep gauges and will not work with yours. You might consider a short 1/8" NPT male to female extension, from a hardware store, to complete the installation.

Will this sensor and the Carbon Fiber 4757 gauge work with a ZF 68A 1.5:1 marine gear?

Asked by: Perrier Blues
Perrier, This will work with a 4757 as it has the same resistance range as 2258 that comes with this kit.

Installed the 5757 meter and Nothing is registering on the gauge.  I’m trouble shooting to determine the issue. Can you tell what the ohms at ambient temperature is for that sender?  Hopefully I do t have to get it hot to determine if it works.

Asked by: Srbob
Here is the link to the operational specs starting at 100 degrees. We don't have an ambient temp spec, but I'd expect 1300-1700 ohms. The most common issue with no reading on the gauge is because of a poor/insufficient ground for the sender. The threads of the sender must ground when installed. Excessive thread sealant, etc, can prevent that ground.

What range of temperature will this read? Looking to use it for a custom application because of its stubby length. Thank you!

Asked by: Bentley
Thank you for your question. You can view our sender spec chart here:
