I found a tach cable for the Mitsubishi K3D that's in my HDT1000, so it's working.  Price wasn't all that bad either:



Now I need to find a temperature gauge.


Looking at mine it appears that the connection at the sensor and gauge are both hardwired, so I'll need the whole thing.


Would the threads on the block for the sensor be some sort of industry standard?  If so, that might make my search a bit easier.


I would need a gauge that fits in a 2" hole.


Anyone have any suggestions/sources?

My guess is they would be some type of pipe thread, so should be easy to find. Most gauges fit around that size hole.

Glad to hear your tac is working and yea that didn't seem to bad of a $ either . No idea of the thread but mabe a if you pulled the sensor a auto parts store could check the theads maybe it will be just pipe thread and a auto temp gauge sender wil work for you , Al

I agree with Alc. I used to get the universal gauges from Whitney and use then in bigger tractors. The temp guage and ammeter came in a set for cheap. Then I'd use them where needed.
