68 Corvette Temperature Gage Malfunction

Post by BlakeV94 » Sep 27th, 2015 4:33 pm

I currently am restoring a 1968 corvette 327. I bought a new temperature sensor and gauge, and still the temperature gauge wont go past a 100 degrees. When grounding the green wire the temperature gauge will move slightly with engine hot. The resistors are all in place correctly. Can any one help tell me what I am doing wrong. The previous own put new heads on the car and the temperature sensor is in the thermostat housing instead of the cylinder head. I think that could possibly be the problem but am unsure. Any tips or advice is appreciated. Thanks!
