Had exactly the same problem when the temp sender disintegrated when i did
my engine swap, replaced sender with a genuine LR V8 item but it read over
temperature (must be different ohms / celcius ratings between gauges &
senders). Replaced both sender & gauge with Durite units (needed a thread
adaptor for the sender) and ran my own wiring.. problem solved (peace of
