    as subject says. My temp wire was pretty much toast(thanks headers /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif) and is not connected right now. I want to splice in a fresh wire. What should I use? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    There is very little current in that circuit. An 18 gauge wire should work just fine. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    I put mine in flexible conduit, used 18ga also. I moved my sender to intake next to thermostat (fit threads in manifold) and routed wire in split loom to keep exhaust from toasting it again. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
