Re: 90q Temp Guage

Most often it's the connector next to the thermostat housing.  At least
that's where it is on my NG engine - should be nearby on yours.  The
connector will more than likely be the same.  Basically, there's a rubber
boot to protect the sensor and it's shaped like an over-large finger.
Unfortunately, the open end points up.  The "finger" fills with moisture
and the connectors get corroded.  On the few 90s I've seen, they've all
been in bad shape.  I removed the entire boot on mine....
