Maybe This\'ll Fix That Stinkin\' Temp Gauge Yes its me again whining about my temp gauge again. Hey, its cold out and I haven't ordered my sheet metal yet so I gotta keep entertained. Well to clue in ya in its an '82 K5 w/crate 350. The temp gauge always reads high, 'bout 210 at idle and 245 at highway speeds. I went and got a new sender but the crate motor accepts the old style senders like on the 78's. Since I can't get the correct sender in there so it sends the proper current maybe I can work around that. Would putting a resistor inline help to knock my gauge back to a normal reading (I've checked the gauge, put in a different one and ground the wire lead on the header and it pegged out so its OK). The only trick is what size resistor and can it stand the heat. Two lines wide, twelve yards long, sixty-five tons of American pride....Canyanero!
