Another viewpoint:

Pyrometer probes are just K type thermocouples.  People pay
way too much for these things from companies who list them
as pyrometer probes and sell them for $60, when you can call
Omega and get them for $20.  My brand new Isspro pyrometer
for my Truck was ordered without the thermocouple from
egauges.com and I calibrated it with an Omega thermocouple.
Works great.  Saved me over $50.

What did dieselpage.com charge you for a probe Loren?  Last I
heard they were over $60 or so.  I am trying to get an order
straightened out with them right now.  I ordered an Isspro boost
gauge, and they sent me the wrong one.  It's been over a week
now, and I still don't have another one.
