gurus....today I noticed the temp gauge in my 1982 Camaro Z28 was pinned
right off the end. It usually flickers up and then to the bottom with key
on/off, but it does NOTHING but stay pinned now. Its got the full gauge
package (big speedo, big tach, small volts, temp, oil pressure, and fuel).
Running a 160 deg thermostat, and the gauge ALWAYS read correctly.
could it just be that the sensor in the side of the block is faxored? is
there a surefire way to test if its the sensor or not? if the gauge is
faxored, I intend to get a sensor designed for a dummy light and trip a
small LED somewhere....but I hope not!!! its a very warmed up 355 if it
matters (original 4 bolt block from a 1977 4x4 camper special)
