Temp switch answered

Recently wanted to know about temp switch, red six EH on. Correct one to use, if it should screw all the way home (if below thermostat) and the supposed myth of dash warning light coming on when cranked? Found my answers on fb, and the myth proven fact. See pics, cheers all. ps Dr Terry is still God πŸ˜‰

EH Temp switch.

Thanks all for advice, think Andrew summed it up. Will go for flip down guage being original car however would still like to see a pic of someone's unmodified 179 with switch below thermostat, also light deffinately meant to come on when cranked from EH on and originally below thermostat on 179hp! PS has anyone seen one flash on when key first turned? Thanks again all, Archie.

EH Coolant Sensor for dash light

What to do next? Was sold a Fuelmiser CTS123 as being correct for EH179, didn't work, turns out meant for guage. Downloaded catalogue to check and bought a Fuelmiser CTS124 meant for dash light. Wouldn't screw all the way in (below thermostat) but didn't leak, didn't work anyway because light not coming on when turn the key (checked light by earthing and it does work). Called Fuelmiser today and was told info correct but catalogue now obsolete and only oil sender being sold now for EH 2.9litre. Both senders still being made however no longer listed as suitable?

Idea of price?

The answer is whatever someone will pay for it. Still, would like some idea of EH air cleaner with filter, water pump and bonnet latch striker plate. All are new, NOS, never been fitted. Getting engine bay back to new, original. Just bought dual note horns, NOS, for $120 postage inc.from Adelaide, stoked as only one of mine ever worked and sounded like it was an effort! Any thoughts appreciated, cheers.
