PostSubject: Defender temp gauge   Thu Jun 16, 2011 9:15 am

Hi I need help (my wife tells me that every day) Ive got a 89' 110 defender with a 300tdi engine in it that was buggered but is now fixed lots of swearing and skinned knuckles. The only prob is its still got the original temp gauge but I need a 200/300 tdi gauge as the one in it goes up to half way when I turn on the ignition so when it warms up its off the gauge.
So has anyone got a 200/300 tdi defender temp gauge part number AMR2631. have cash or disco bits to swap. Thanks. Laughing cheers

the gauge and the sender have to be a matched pair so you'll either have to have the sender from the original engine plumbed into the 300 Tdi or a gauge from the 300 Tdi

PRC 6387 is (I think) the old sender, might be cheaper than the gauge.

that's interesting, does it have to be a black defender? what about the blue ones and the green ones? not to mention the white ones
