I'm wanting to put a new temperature gauge on my WD45 (the type that has the longer lead so that I can mount it in a place that I can see while operating the tractor). I was going to simply replace the factory gauge, but a replacement is kinda pricey and I am having a hard time getting the old one out (it's very rusty and I'm afraid that I'm going to break something). So, my question is, where do I insert the temp probe into the engine? I've looked all over the engine and can't find anywhere that it will fit. Am I overlooking something or is there just simply no place to put the new gauge? Thanks for the help.

Sorry but to replace the sending unit, the old one MUST come out. There is no other hole for it. Try tapping it with a small hammer to loosen the rust. Use penetrating oil. Cut the lead from it and get a good six point socket on it and play with it by tightening and loosening movements. It will come out without damage if you take your time and don't get rough with it. Take a small round wire brush and clean up the threads before installing a new one. Use a couple of wraps of teflon tape when installing being careful not to use too much. Don't want anything plugging up the radiator....Good Luck

Words to live by. Wish I would have read that earlier today, before I started to replace the old rusted gauge.

My old temp gauge in my wd DID NOT want to come out. I ended up stripping the nut all the way down to the copper portion of the gauge. Never thougt about breaking the gaugue off and putting a socket on it.

Time to go buy an 'easy-out' to get it out of there... Sigh....

I worked on my gauge for about 15 minutes today and with a little tapping and some WD40, the old temp gauge came out. Thanks for all the help.

Thanks for the advice. I looked that engine over for at least an hour and couldn't find anything, so I figured that I was out of luck. Wish me luck on getting that old gauge out.

Thanks again!
