    Temperature gauge install 785

    Okay so I am going to put a temperature gauge in the dash of my pro 785. I have the hot seat head so I am not quite sure what the best way to do this would be.

    The sending unit I bought for it is a 3/8 threaded brass piece with a little probe that would go into the water. My thought is to get some kind of three way fitting and install it into the water out hose right very close to where it connects to the engine.

    I guess my question is, if I do it that way, is that going to give me a fairly accurate idea of what temp the engine is running at?

    If not, what would be some other options for setting this up?

    I bet that automotive gauge you have doesn't start reading until 120 so it isn't very handy! mine never moves but the one time a towed a bass boat in it did start to climb and I guess for that alone it was worth the install because I had to stop towing every so often and buzz around to cool her off! I like darts set up they also make some cool go cart ones also Z

    I really like the plastic cooling lines and the push lock fittings. That is a GREAT idea and very easy to remove and reinstall.
