I recently purchased an Autometer electric temperature gauge for my stock 82 5MGE. The fittings supplied do not fit and the metric extras I ordered from Autometer are both too small! Any ideas on what will work and where I might get the proper sized fitting? Thanks.

Let me check my adapter kit for the water temp gauge.

OK, I used a m16x1.5 adapter fitting on my celica (22r) in the temp sensor location. I assumed the sensors are the same. Also I used a mechanical temp gauge.

I got mine from SuperAutoBacs here in town. You can order them from Summit.

Thanks for the advice, I think I now know the problem. The adapters for the electric are M12x1.5 and the ones for the mechanical are M16x1.5. Autometer advised me to go with the electric gauge because of the fittings! I guess they were wrong!! Thanks again.
