I know they are not the original style that came on a 1950 cub but thought they were a good buy for a combo set since both the oil and ammeter gage need replacing. This set also hasatemp gage which would be nice to add if there is a way to do it. Has anyone ever added a temp gauge? If so, how did they do it?

The outlet has plenty of meat to cut enough threads to hold the temperature probe tight. Even though the probe looks too long, it does fit when tightened down inside the neck.
The gauge I used from Farm n Fleet is mechanical with the thermocouple tube running atop the engine (excess coiled under the fuel tank) to the gauge in the dash which required a metal cutting hole saw to install.
The gauge seems to be accurate... At idle barely coming off the peg and stopping just before the red when running my Woods 59 at over eighty degrees Fahrenheit.
Call me paranoid but the 59 is more mower than a cub can comfortably power so coolant temperature is crucial to monitor.
