    Ahh that plug. I was thinking one of the ones that went into the back of the gauge.
    See what redarc say tomorrow, they've been great when I've dealt with them on the phone about warranty returns and picking their brains on wiring my temperature probe switch.
    I'd be surprised if they didn't have a replacement plug they'd sell you. I'd assume it will be pricey though.
    I'm gonna guess $16

    $16 will be a Bloody Bargain mate!!! Better than $450 for a new gauge!!

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    Wow. Thanks awesome.

    So how smart was Luke at Geelong Gauge Works. Showed him the drawing in the manual and told him it was an 8 pin from memory. He went out to his shed and called me in a couple of minutes later and said does it look like that??? Common plug out the back of a stereo in a Holden barina and alike. Search the wreckers with a pair of side cutters







    He did well. For $16 I will take a new Loom though. Thanks for your help.

    Classic. What a guess!!

    I based that estimation on the $50+ they charged me for an 1/4" stainless EGT bung.

    Excellent. Good to know it's a common plug & well done locating one at the wreckers

    Quick update here.
    Mechanic refused to swap out ts to 82 from hi flow 76 citing the load with the backpack aboard. Fair point.

    So, on my annual Grumpyclaus run, Warwick, Tweed Heads etc from Childers, I reckoned to really test it, albeit running empty.
    Away about midday, ambient temp here high 30's. Southwest to Yarraman and then directly west toward Toowomba. Temps never over 80. Egt's steady around 350.
    Up the range from Yarraman at Thornville. Ambient temp 40+, flogging it all the way 110k plus.
    Finally pushed it to 92 and egt's to 550. But seriously had to flog it, fuel gauge hated me.
    Upshot, still thinking higher rated TS required.

    @MB can't find the pics of full intercooler setup, will grab the camera over the weekend.

    Fark if my egts got to 550 I would have seen 120c easily on water temps.

    550 is the highest I've seen. Have had it to 500 prior, back pack on, fully provisioned and loooong uphill drag, temp no more than mid 80's.
    Would put it down to the custom built rad', high flow ts and the W2A ic.

    Really must bring my build thread up to date. Got lots of piccies on this 'puter, somewhere!!
