Ya, Gil said he never had anyone ask for one.
I asked for one a few days ago. He couldn’t find one.
Mine is bad too.

I haven’t been able to find one here or in Germany. I’ll probably end up using an adaptor once I confirm the thread size.

Ya I’ve spent hrs on the internet looking. Anything that looks close is ether out of stock or they want $80 for it. I believe the threads are 10mm, but I haven’t figured out the pitch yet. I have an adapter to use one with 1/8” pipe thread but still can’t find one in the right ohm range. I may have to do something like I did on the V6 and solder a resister at the gauge.

Do you know the ohm range? I wonder if the 1.9L one is the same with an adapter.

Not for sure, someone posted a range of 400 to 30 ohms from 90 digress to redline. I would think the gauges would be the same as the 1.9. I think there were two different thread sizes according to the year of the GT.

same engine as the Opel 1.1

if a screw thread top then


may be a case of changing the wire connector if no spade connector ones available

Yes I believe a 70-73 13 mm and 68-69 17 mm
I'm really surprised to hear Gil never had anyone ask?
The 73 FSM is of no help either as it relates to ohm value other using an 40 ohm resister /wire But does talk about the sending unit and checks/tests here (1 l-65 ) & (1 l-69 )

A Delco SU-22 or Intermotor 5279 looks like they will fit.

Also looks like a 68-69 GT one will fit.

I ordered a 52790 from the UK. It should work with a ring connector.
I also ordered a 90510850 from the USA, from the part Terry listed. I don’t trust that one though. It lists cars that I know don’t use the right sensor along with ones that do.

I don't know why anybody doesn't ask me. Since I have them...but if you insist. There are two, one is a white insulator and one is a black. The 68-69 Kadett used the same size in the 1.9 thermostat housing
Is that the same housing as the 1.1?

Gesture Wood Rectangle Eyewear Tints and shades
Looking through my junk pile and look what I found in the bottom of a box! This is a 1/8” threaded sensor that was in a 1.9 thermostat housing. I had a metric adapter to make it work. Works fine with the gauge, room temperature ohm reading is 635 ohms.
