Questions about my engine case 75 914

Hi everyone

Starting my 6th 914 project, a 70 914 with a 75-76 2.0 L. Engine case number is a GC.

My question is about a sensor located on the bottom of the engine. I plan to carb the engine so no concerns about the fuel injection. Wondering what it is and do I cut the wire leading to it or do I plug the hole with a bolt. Dave can you please chime in on this one.

Thanks in advance

Too many Porsches to list

The sensor on the bottom of the engine is oil temp. Handy to know. If you don't want a gauge, you can just leave it in place. If you do want a gauge, you'll have to run a wire from the box connector on the right side of the motor up to your gauge location.
