oil temp sender and gauge

I searched the past archives, but I want to clarify my question in the present. I removed the stock oil temp gauge from the center console in my 73 2.0. I put in an aftermarket VDO cockpit oil temp gauge #310012. I need to replace the stock oil temp sender with VDO-323055, right? Thanks

Yes, I believe they are sold as a set. However, DD says the stock ones are made by VDO. The real question is do you want to trust a 30 year old sender?

Yup, that's all correct. The stock ones are VDO, but the range is wrong for any of the popular aftermarket gauges.

There are three wires that plug into the rear of the gauge. One is from the sendor, one is grounded, and the other..?

IIRC the other is a + lead for the gauge illumination; should be switched by the parking lamp circuit ideally.

The VDO gauge I just got running has the lamp power as a seperate terminal at the top of the gauge.

Other than that you are correct. G is for the wire from the G (gauge I assume) terminal on the sender. Earth symbol is ground, and + is 12v switched (accessory). That way you will get a reading even if your lights are off.

I hope you have as much fun watching your oil pressure go up and down as I do!
