Re: Autometer water temp gauge install help

Most of the water temp gauges I have seen have their own sender like an egt gauge. What I have seen done is you have to tap into a specific spot you want to take the temp from. I have seen people tap into the thermostat housing. You drill and tap it just like an egt gauge. Maybe your gauge isn't set up this way. It's kind of like the difference between wideband and narrow band 02 gauges. One taps into a wire, whereas the other reads directly from the sender. I think yours is the type that taps into a wire. Maybe this could be why it's inaccurate. It's hard to tell.
