I have a top radiator hose mounted temperature probe wired to a gauge in my dash. The wire between the two looks to be a very brittle solid copper wire which has broken at the base of the temperature probe. Is there a way to fix this wire? How does the probe translate information to the gauge? Any help is appreciated.

Yes, Bob, now that you jog my memory, I do think I have seen something like that before. Doubt many takers though. Good for old car "must be original" competition show types.

Rich.........JMOR is correct. long hollow tube filled with gas. Biggest problem is what to do with LONG tube. Ya weave it back'n'forth, NO SHARP TURNS. Me? I botta Stewart/Warner temp gage fer Jaguar sports car. It hadda 3-ft tube that was just rite length. I now have a temp gauge opposite side of my "proofmeter". Hardest part was drilling the "hump" in the head fer the "boss". (1/4-NPT, I think).......Dell

Hey Buddy,

Just replaced the radiator in my FORD E-150. OEM Canadia all metal.
Trouble is outlet on the radiator was opposite side for EOM.

Had to do a rigg'N to retrofit the old girl to the current part.

So, goes to show, we were able to get the equipment goi'N again, and sav'N $35,000.00, fer a new 'un.
See ya's later.

Probably not a wire, but a tube with a very small inside diameter, normally holding a gas or liquid under pressure & I do not know of any fix, once the gas/liquid has escaped. New probe/tube/gauge assembly is due.

" I do not know of any fix, once the gas/liquid has escaped. "

FWIW, some restorers of classic autos repair their valuable original temp gauges, there's quite a few tutorials on the 'net on various was to do it. The link below shows how the cap tube and ether from a cheap modern gauge can be used to save an original gauge.
