Series I temp sender questions

How awful and disheartening. So sorry to hear what happened. Hope you can eventually get re-motivated to get back to it.

NVU-99320-04 is a New Vintage sender part number, not a VDO part number. I don't think that sender would have had the right resistance curve if it did fit.

I'm guessing you don't have a thread gauge (SAE & metric) or a caliper to measure the existing sender's TPI and thread OD?

I'm hoping someone on the forum might know the stock temp sender diameter and TPI.


It's quite possibly BSP - British Standard Pipe if it's an original to the car part. Possibly 3/8" BSP. Some time ago I thought the metric equivalent was M16x1.5R, but I would check as it has been a while since I needed to mess with temp senders.
