My late friend, Buford Efird had one on his cub.

The Moto-Meters are fairly common on Ford Model A's (not the street rod type like ours though) . My Farmall M had the temp guage sending unit in the water jacket in the engine block...that way, you could tell right away if the internal engine temp was running too hot. Of course the M also had a thermostat (unlike the Cub's thermo-syphon system) .

I have one on my IH.......1929 Six-Speed Special Truck.
Most of us run our engines too cool. Most guys do not use the shutters to get their Farmall C's etc... up to temperature. They are always trying to run them cool when in fact they were made to run warm.
30 + tractors including 2 French Super Cubs, French Cubs, 1963 Industrial Cub, 1955 Cub Highcrop etc...German and French built IH tractors and some bigger IH tractors. Of course I have about 20 IH trucks and an IH refridge in the Shop.
I went to TSC yesterday and did not care much for the looks of the temp gages they had one was $26 the other $31. The cub is running so good now I dceided to give it a treat and went to my IH dealer and got a new exhust pipe. While I was there I checked out their temp gages and got one with the IH logo very quality looking for $44.83. If I can fit it int the base of upper radiator pipe I will put it their if not it will fit into the lower water pipe where the boss is.
Take care of your equipment and it will take care of you. 1964 cub. Farmall 100 and 130.
