SOLD!! Aftermarket Cylinder Head Temp Gauge
Posted by: PGVair ()
Date: November 12, 2022 05:20PM

For sale: Unused older aftermarket cylinder head temperature gauge. Gauge has 18" leads. Thermocouple sensor fits under a spark plug with 48" leads, which are red and white. This is Type J per Frank DuVal, so an extension to reach the front also needs to be Type J. Does not use 12 volt to operate. Asking $40. Paypal accepted.

Thanks,
Wade Lanning

What kind of wiring would be needed to extend the present wiring so it could be used in a Corvair ?

My understanding is that Type J thermocouple wire (Iron/Constantan - ASTM/ANSI Type J) is needed. See links below

Others on this forum may know more about this.

The trick is what colors are in that brown/black tracer wire coil on the left of the picture. If white and red, then type J.

All extensions need to be the same alloys, or each junction becomes another thermocouple and messes the readings (adds or removes voltage).
