92 4.0 mechanical temperature gauge...

Does anyone know of a gauge that has a fitting to fit the factory temp sender threads on the rear of the head on a 92 4.0?

I have gone through 2 aftermarket crappy temp gauges and would like to install a mechanical gauge. But all of the mechanical gauges I find come with 1/2 inch NPT thread for the probe which is too big.

I don't want to tap into the head to enlarge the threads. Anyone else have an option for running a mechanical temp gauge?

I don't think I've ever seen a mechanical temp gauge with a probe small enough to fit the stock location. The stock sender is electrical and mechanical probes are generally larger than electrical senders since they are filled with fluid (which expands with temp and actuates the gauge).

A good quality (Autometer, Stewart-Warner Deluxe/Heavy-Duty, etc.) electrical gauge should work well and fit the stock sender location. Cheap gauges are usually cheap for a reason.

thank you for the response.

I will look into getting a better electrical gauge.
