    Installed a oil temp dipstick sender.

    Had the guage on the dash for 5 years without it working ...now it should move/work/read oil temp:thumbsup:

  8. I think it’s boring wiring/motors rather than the controller (which has beggar-all in it).

    Went for a ride out to check the (now working 1st time for me) oil temp guage.
    Great...it works.
    The temp never rose above 90.[​IMG]

    This is after 2 hours of driving, including up a mountain to 1500m.

    Pretty good I'd say.

  19. Might it be worth considering fitting an oil thermostat, if you have an external cooler? I was thinking of doing this on my Bug, it can take an age to warm up the oil on colder days.
