Speedhut temp gauge only reads half temp
« on: July 22, 2019, 10:52:49 PM »
Has anyone had an issue with the Speedhut temp sender? My gauge only reads about half of the temp
of the  motor (ie: motor is running 200deg=100deg
 on gauge).
Any recommendations on a sender, the gauge is not programmable.

Did you call and ask them?  They initially sent me the wrong sender.  This was discovered through trouble shooting with their tech.

Looks like I have the wrong sender, ordered the correct one from Speedhut.
(I don't remember but I may have used the one that was with the motor after the build, they supposedly look identical)

Part #G-SNDR-07 if anyone else is experiencing the same issue.
