200TDi Temp Gauge & Sender issue

I replaced my stock temp sensor with a VDO gauge:
Part #: 310-1052
Range: 100F - 250F (Metric Kit)
On Dial: WATER

All I did was plug it in, after changing the ground and power connectors to spades. Thanks to Dave S (javelinedave) I figured out I needed to replace the sender unit as well. With a VDO one.

Does anyone know which VDO sensor unit threads into the existing hole? I have one in there currently that has a spade connector on the wire - so I know I need the spade connector as I don't want to rerun all new wiring.

The old one worked fine, I just wanted more accurate - with numbers - readings.

Here is the site I would use to buy it....

awesome - I guess that is all I need? The gauge came with a sender, but I thought it was just plug and play with a new gauge.

The right gauge and sender are plug and play. The original harness is fine. You do have to use the sender they sent you you hard headed Aussie wanker.
Sounds like Kang has the adapter for you.

Not sure then. I've never worked on one. I think they are M16x1.5. The answer is in a thread somewhere. Perhaps Jonesy could look and measure what is in there.

yeah I have the sender - but here is my real problem...

I only have Thursday night at home to put it in and get it working before leaving for Expo on Friday am - and I am out of town until Thursday 4pm...

So, with the adaptor from Ed I should be fine...one hopes.

And my 200TDi is a Defender engine, not Disco

Oh darn. Sorry Jonesy. My adapter will only work for a Defender 200tdi's threads. If you've got a disco 200tdi my adapter won't work!

EDIT: Oops...I guess you DO have a Defender engine hahah. Who knows what's going on anymore Will have it in the mail tonight.
