I've been chasing High Oil Temp, and High CVT Temp for a couple of months! I used an Autometer Electric Oil Temp Gage to monitor Engine Oil Temp., and CVT Belt Temp. I ran one wire to the gage sender post, and using an On-Off-On SPDT Switch I figured I could switch between the two sensors. I had extremely high readings on oil, and CVT temp. , the oil temp I passed off as a sign of the blown head gasket, the CVT temp I passed off as the case getting that hot (I mounted the sensor direct in the case by drilling and tapping a hole for 1/8" NPT), This has really been a PIA, so I double checked all my connections! The New Switch I installed was defective! I'm forgetting basic stuff! Just because a Part is new don't mean that it is good! This Prowler is reawakening old lessons! LOL Put another switch in (after checking it!) and the gage is responding as it should! Just a reminder for all of us!
