Hey Taz ... sorry for late reply ....
Im just using this .... http://www.ausjeepoffroad.com/forum/...7&postcount=11
So Im not really getting exact
oil temps ... but close enough for my needs.
The unit also has a high temp buzzer and 12v power trigger for things such as thermofan relays etc ... It was just a quick, lazy way of getting a multifunction unit that did a number of jobs for me ... rather than dash full of permanent gauges and a gazillion extra miles of wiring / plumbing.
For an actual oil temp sensor ... Some have welded in sensor mounts in the sump pan ... It seems to be the recommended temp measuring spot. I was going to fit inline sensors on both oil cooler lines (another gunna
) but the electronic one is adequate - for me ... and easily hooked up to other components as required.
