New VDO is probably cheaper that a second hand NAS

So here's what I went through recently, my factory temp gauge was acting up and intermittent. Thought it was a bad line maybe from the sender or ground - it wasn't. After monkeying around with it for a week I went ahead and ordered the VDO temp gauge & sender for about $50 total. Let me just say it is a HUGE improvement...gauge is much more accurate, and actually moves up & down according to actual temps (not to mention has NUMBERS on it!). You'll be happy with the VDO, and for the price can't go wrong. I ordered from egauges.com, here's the specs you need:

VDO 310-105 250F Water - 2 1/16" - Vision Black
VDO 323-417 Temperature Sender: 250F/120C - M16x1.5 - Screw - Single

Thanks. Makes sense to go this route. Was trying to keep the interior as stock as possible not I'm sure this will be healthier for the truck.

Actually my understanding is that the gauges used in the NAS are vdo gauges (if you look at the tach you'll see that too), but just were either done specifically for the NAS or they used the "cheapies" without the numbers/etc.

For as important as the temp is to monitoring things under the hood, I'd really urge you to replace it with the VDO (and you can keep the other gauges if you want...but I've started to replace those as well!).

VDO 310-105 250F Water - 2 1/16" - Vision Black
VDO 323-417 Temperature Sender: 250F/120C - M16x1.5 - Screw - Single

Yes, you can reuse the cable. The sender-side just plugs right in, on the gauge side you need to either: a) cut & crimp a new end to fit the VDO, or b) make a simple "jumper" wire (that I think is just a male spade terminal on one and, and female on the other).

Actually I just realized I was wrong on the sender-side...it's got a thumb-screw, so I actually cut & crimped a new electrical end with a eyelet. But other than that it's straight-forward. PM or post with any questions once you get it in-hand.

If you already own a 94/95 gauge what wire would you use?

Yeah but you need to remove the conditioner of death. I think that's where Ronnie's question originates.

Conditioner of death? Please expand . I didn't even have to pull my speedo cable, just popped off the dash cluster, undid all connections, plugged new one in (with a wire jumper I made up), good to go.

Ronnie has a 93 110 which has a box that always indicates normal temp even when the truck is doing a thermonuclear meltdown.

That needs to be extracted hence his wiring job is somewhat more complex.
