Well, I wasn't even going to get into this until this morning when I plowed the drive with Ferguson that I had just put a "new" TSC temp guage on yesterday. Thought it would be a good test to see how it worked. Well you guessed it. Oh it wasn't that it registered wrong or slow or any of them "good" faults, no it never budged. This, after carefully routing the capillary tube out of harms way and even protecting it in plastic wiring conduit and doing a real neat install. No, I didn't try it out in hot water first. I'd like to think of myself as being somewhat of a positive thinker when it come to new parts. Unfortunately I can't just "alter" this and make it work. It was the last in a loooong to do list on this tractor/snow blade and I was feeling pretty good about that ....well not so much now. I absolutely HATE doing things twice. For two cents I'd just get an electric one with sender unit and forget this old capillary tube crap.

BTDT! I went through 4 SW temp gauges before I got one that worked, These came from a big truck parts dealer that sells a lot of parts. I will agree that there are aftermarket parts that are better than OEM and some that are just junk! Its a crap shoot buying them. Its kinda like this, To say the aftermarket industry is all bad and junk stuff is wrong.

Just think about how many aftermarket parts you really use without thinking about it. How many of you out there have gone to NAPA or other parts places when the starter or water pump goes out of the tractor? Do you go to the dealer to buy ALL the oils and filters for your equipment and trusty old pick up? Did you buy that tune up for the Oliver 88 from AGCO? When the back rims on the old 4020 went bad did you go to JD to get factory replacements? I could go on and on. If you don't buy it from the dealer then it aftermarket, Plain and simple.

So before you bad mouth aftermarket parts and call them all junk just think about All the parts and stuff you buy that you use every day that did not come from the OEM dealer. They all make good and they all make bad. Just something to think about. Bandit
