Note: REQUIRES PIN-GRIP/SLEEVE TERMINAL & CONNECTOR AS ORIGINAL
Lectric Limited now offers accurate temperature sending units. Months of research were devoted to this project in order to provide our customers with sending units that have the original-type terminal connection, housing and resistance (thermistor); resulting in an accurate gauge reading. They screw right into the 1/2" (not 3/8") pipe thread hole (as original).
Both auto part's stores and GM/Delco do sell replacement temperature sending unit, but they do not produce an accurate gauge reading in vintage cars. This is because sending units from an auto part's store and even GM, are only a generic replacement; often requiring a new, matching gauge or re-calibration of your original gauge.
Please Note: The terminal connections on all our sending units are exactly as-original. Through the years, the mating terminal & connector on your harness may have been changed by you or a previous owner. This change was most likely made in order to try different sending units when the "exact replacement" unit didn't work or was not available. If your harness had been modified from original, we do offer replacement Temperature Sending Unit Lead Repair Kits. SEE E9378 FOR TEMPERATURE SENDING UNIT LEAD REPAIR KIT.
