[urq] Sending units for gauges

If you are asking whether or not you can use the sending units on the engine
with your new gauges, the answer would be no.  

What would be best would be to get the sending units from the same car the
gauges were taken from, but chances are that will not be possible.  You
should be able to purchase sending units from VDO based on the operating
range of the gauge you have.  

The sending units will screw into the same holes as the originals.  On my
urq I wanted to be able to view the light as well as the gauge, so I
retained the original sender and wiring, and added new wires for the new

You might also want to look into the possibility of fitting the sending unit
in a different location.  On my urq I attached senders in the galleries at
the back of the head ...

  Am trying to fit VDO 4000s aux gauges to 4kq. What sending units do  
I need? These are specific units for the gauges themselves rather than  
the idiot light arrangement?
Sorry for cross reference.
