The Gauge and Adapter arrived today  Installing coolant/water temperature gauge . . . . . . (Now Done) - Page 2 586905 I'm impressed with the size of the gauge, It's smaller than I'd imagined so it'll give me more options for placement, I'm quite pleased with the adapter too  Very Happy Not that I get excited about adapters or anything pervy? I'd read somewhere that a 22mm adapters size was taken from the internal measurements, which would have been too large, anyway, the measurements are external so it should be a good fit. bloody typical I'm back in work now! so I'll crack on with fitting it as soon as I get a minute.

The installation didn't go to plan, after close inspection of hose 22 I didn't feel the adapter would be suitable in that position, It's too short to get the adapter in before the bend in the pipe and I got a feeling the hose might kink?, I've gone back to the idea of fitting an adapter in the bypass hose and ordered one of suitable size so that's all I'm waiting for now, I've wired the gauge in and had it working with a sensor in some warm water and it works well, I'm impressed with it's novelty factor too!  Laughing

Fitted and working!  Installing coolant/water temperature gauge . . . . . . (Now Done) - Page 2 3498837457  Fan kicks in just as the gauge is about to hit 102C  that's 3C before it's supposed to? whether that's due to the sensor being slightly away from the cylinders or the gauge is slightly inaccurate? or even the fan sensor being inaccurate? who knows lol, To fit the sensor adapter I just used two G clamps to squash the pipe either side of the Joint in the bypass hose to lose minimal coolant while I took the plastic joint out and slipped the adapter in.

It's an 8mm 1/8 npt fuel pressure gauge adapter (internal diameter) but there's various types on eBay that could be used for the same thing, I chose this because it's solid (just seal the sensor with PTFE tape) as opposed to having 3 seals (either end + sensor) to make up.

Excellent, well done! Thanks for the great pictures. This might be the easiest way to install the sensor, so I need to consider this also.

Hi Yeah I can't see why not if you can find somewhere suitable for the temperature sensor boss to be fitted? I can't see a By-pass pipe for the water pump on the VX schematic? Is there one? so I presume it would have to be fitted on one of the flow pipes somewhere between the cylinder and and water pump to give a reasonably accurate reading.

You'll probably be able to get one from car spares shop or they might order one in? I'm not sure where you'd mount it on the VX as it doesn't seem to have a by pass hose on the thermostat?

Wow - Simbo  - this is juswt a great posting - i love it - i really like your posting and all what you describe.many thanks for sharing your ideas and experience. simbo wrote:
I've had a look at the Cooling system today to get an idea of what goes where and where things might fit? The best place to fit the sensor adaptor would be on hose '19' as near to the rear cylinder as possible, But it's 'metal' and would mean cutting the pipe and getting a sensor adaptor the same diameter as the pipe and fitting hose over each joint so seal it, Pipe '22' is to short and has a bend in it, so that's not really an option, hose '7' only gets warm after the thermostat has opened so wouldn't give a true reading, especially if the thermostat was faulty, Hose '6' is to short and would only give the temperature of water after it's been cooled by the radiator once the thermostat has opened, Hose '4' would only give the temperature of the coolant in the radiator, So basically that leaves the thermostat By-Pass hose at the bottom (under 7) That would give a true reading of the coolant temperature at all times, There's a joint in the by-pass hose near the left foot peg which would be a ready made place to put a sensor adaptor without it being to visible, that would also allow the wiring to be run along the larger pipe up towards the headstock where the gauge would be situated, These are the hose diagrams again for reference  (saves scrolling) and below is what you would need to fit it.
