Testing Temp Sensor

I need to change my temp sensor on my 200tdi. I was thinking before removing the old one I could connect the new one and drop it in 180 degree cup of water to make sure it is compatible with the early 80's original gauge. Anything I might be missing or not thinking about here?

If it is a Defender 200TDI sensor, it will be correct. All Defenders use the same range gauge. If it is a Discovery 200TDI sensor, it will not be correct.

Your test sounds fine. Only insert the tip...... and ground the threaded part.
