Water Temp. Gauge

Postby jonny2guns4u » Fri Mar 24, 2017 12:25 pm

Hello All,

I have what is probably a stupid question but I'm just ignorant when it comes to some things on my little BN. I love to put "options" on my tractors and have been wanting to add a Temperature Gauge on my 1941 BN. I see that Steiner now sells them with the sending unit. Here is where I get lost. Where does the sending unit screw in? Did the Dual Fuel BN's come from the factory with a special Inlet Elbow? Or is there a plug in the block somewhere I can't seem to find?

Thanks in advance,

An A/B with the temperature gauge (which included but was not limited to distillate tractors) had an inlet elbow that was drilled/tapped for the sensing bulb. It is a pipe thread. If you can't find the correct elbow, you can drill and tap your existing one.

Ugh!

I don't want to have to drill mine or buy a new or used one and a gasket just for a Temp. Gauge. I guess I might not be putting on this option.
