That's how the water temp gauge was added to my car. After putting up for
years with requiring a bypass to avoid a 4000 rpm cutoff, I discovered that
the temp sender tap was the problem. I disconnected the gauge from the
sender, and it pulls better with no 4000 rpm problem.
I plan to use a tee (I know, I know - don't use tees with temp senders) on
the back of the engine where you will find 2 other water temp senders. One
is a thermotime switch; the other is the dual low temp/high temp switch.
If you can, use the abt panel which will accept 3 additional gauges. If
not, there are several ways to add gauges to the diff lock switch panel.
