As I recall (being one of those involved in the previous discussion),
Doug Mitchell solved the critical part of the equation. Fitting the temp.
sender is the problem, solved by using an adaptor from a Midget 1500.
Doug, does that sound right?
Otherwise, it should be a straightforward replacement of old with new,
after which you'll have that extra hole for a genuine Smiths vacuum, oil
temp. or ambient temperature gauge. ;-)
