1954 Water temperature sensor?

Recommended Posts

I have a 1954 Chry N.Y. 331 v8. I'm trying to replace my water temperature sensor. It does disconnect at the sensor by unthreading the nut disconnecting  the flared tube fitting.. As I ask about a new one it seems that several has mentioned that the original sensor was affixed to the tube and directly with the dash gauge.  Is this correct..  I have the original dash gauge but like I said , it unscrews off of the sensor.   I need to just replace the sensor. Does anyone know where I can purchase one?

As Tom has said, the sensor to gauge is a sealed unit. If you break any of the connections the enclosed fluid will escape  and it's really a specialist job to repair, or if you are an industrial chemist, avery tricky job.
