VDO Temperature Sender

Hi Everybody,

I've searched and searched but I still confused about which VDO temperature sensor is the best fit for a 94 D-90 with a 3.9L. I've found three different thread types mentioned in various postings and I'm not sure which is correct. The FAQ references an eGauges.com part number (323-422) that no longer exists.

Could somebody recommend one of these senders ? I'd like to avoid having to re-tap, if possible.

The 323-417 works perfectly. I just installed one a couple months ago.

Thanks, Jim. Do I need to buy their wiring kit or any of their adapters? I was hoping to utilize the existing wiring but I'm not sure if that will work.

You dont need to buy a wiring kit or any adapters, you can use the stock wire, however, the I recall the end connector is different, so you might have to cut the original one off and crimp a new one on. And you will have to cut and crimp a couple connectors behind the guage so that you can plug in the existing wires to make the guage light up. No new wires, just rearranging ones already there.

Based on other posts, I ordered a 323-095 for my '93 D110. Did I not get the right one? Do I need to 323-417?

It's confusing. I went ahead and ordered the unit that Jim recommends. I'll report my findings here.

.This post seems to indicate two different threadings. Really confused.

I put in the 1/8 NPT sender in to my 110. I had an adapter machined from a bolt I got at the hardware store. Cost me 9 bucks.

VDO Temp Sending Unit for '93 D110

It's definitely the 323-417. Installed it this evening. Works like a charm.
