Slightly OT temp Sender

HI

My Landy is going, however the temp sender on my 3ltr v6 essex motor seems
to return a steady 0. I have tried to connect the sender wire to the block
as advised by a auto elec and that did indeed send the temp gauge full scale
as he suggested it should, presumably meaning that the sender is at fault.

The problem is that I have recently replaced the sender so do I have a duff
unit, and if so how do I tell I am getting a good one if I buy another. (I
have a fluke and I am willing to use it.)

Regards
Stephen

You will have to use an LR sender unit - the Ford item will not work
with a LR temp guage.
