Oil Pan Sensor for Oil Temperature Gauge
3/8 NPT

Fairing Mounted Cylinder Head and/or Oil Temperature Dash Gauge
No matter what model air cooled V-Twin engine you have, your cylinder head temperature is a vital statistic. Running too hot or cold is a sure sign of your power plants health and longevity and should not be over-looked. Marlin Corporation is breaking new ground with the introduction of our new multi-purpose Cylinder Head / Oil Temperature Gauge designed to operate on both EVO and Twin Cam Harleys, Sportsters and Victorys. The use of a unique bolt on surface sensor and/or oil sensor provides the vital info a rider needs while jamming across a desert expanse, sitting to long with the engine idling in a parade or just waiting for a train to pass. With little effort this unique gauge will fit snuggly into one of the dash holes available on your Electraglide, Roadglide or Streetglide fairing and provide you with critical information about your engines health and performance. (Great to replace that OEM air temp gauge)
The gauge can also be set up to tell you oil temperature with the optional drain pan mounted sensor (for Twin Cam engines only) or both oil and head temperature with optional sensor and toggle switch configuration
Perfect for the FL series touring bikes with fairings, as the gauge will fit into one of the four dash holes available with little effort.
Fits 99-Later Electra Glide® (Including FLHTCUTIG) Road Glide® and Street Glide® models.
Not compatible with Chrome Instrument Gauge Bezel

NEAT TIP... Last week I noticed that the mount bolt where I had the temp sensor was a little loose and sending erratic readings. I decided to back it almost all the way out and put some blue Loctite on it. My son in law who is a computer systems designer asked me what that part was, and I told him it was kind of a thermocouple heat sensor. He told me to try some Thermal Grease on the sensor part as they use it all the time to make sure there is a perfect heat conduction between the mother board HEAT SINK and the main processor. I went to Radio Shack and they had several different types. FIRST IT HAS TO BE NON CONDUCTIVE, which left the ceramic based grease, or the Silver Oxide based grease. The ceramic is about $6 and is pretty small but appears to be enough for about 6-8 installations. The Silver Oxide based is about $10 a tube. I figured I would try the ceramic type first. I was absolutely amazed at the way the sensor behaved. It showed the head temp change almost immediately, after startup, and was right in-line with the oil temperature. I guess it did what it was supposed to do, fill any minute gaps in the flat surfaces with a material that eliminates any air gaps between the parts, no matter how invisible they may be.
