71 c10 temp sensor

My temp sensor requires a15/16 to remove but tested it wih an ohm meter and has conduit. Where can i find the bullet style connector, is it a special type of connector or is is it something found at napa?

Re: 71 c10 temp sensor

It has continuity when tested? Is that what you meant to say? When tested with a meter or DVOM, it read 0 ohms?

You can just open up a regular female spade connector to work for the time being and order a connector from just about anywhere I suppose.

Re: 71 c10 temp sensor

If it looks like a little 'T' on top, that's a "GM Single Wire Coolant Temperature Sender" connector, and you can get those at The Repair Connector Store for around $5/ea.

The 'T' connector is used on a temperature senders for gauges. It's a different connector if you have idiot lights.

Re: 71 c10 temp sensor

I bought the connector I installed it but I'm not getting any reading on the gauge is just one wire or does this have a ground wire?

Re: 71 c10 temp sensor

If you wrapped the threads of the sensor in teflon tape, you may not have a ground. It's grounded through the block.
