can't find the part number (bought it too long ago) but this is what the sensor looks like. the clamp fitting to the block may look different though.

Buy a new one! they aren't fantastically expensive. They literally just butt up onto the head and conduct heat that way-very easy to replace

Does this look like the right item?

Make sure all the mountings are ok and email them to ask dimensions to make sure it's the right one.

It looks like the kind of thing, but I didnt trace it all the way back, also the wire just pulled straight out of the middle of mine, which I would guess looking at that its not supposed to do!

If it's going off constantly then yeah, should be a dodgy sensor. Get a replacement before you use it in anger though.

LOL no, it's supposed to be quite a solid solder joint. I'd guess that your dodgy wire was shorting to earth.

Hmmmm, I thought as much, have to try and get the rest of the blessed thing out now, thanks again though Nos, you've provided some spot on advice, although I was hoping to convince my wife that I'd need a new engine instead. Nevermind, maybe I'll convince her next time I manage to break something.

Is that the clamshell,square cowl or rounded cowl version you've got? If it's the square cowl with the top fill for the autolube what year is it? I've been trying to find a manual for mine and clymer don't list one for my model year.


I'm sure if you're clever you'll manage to convince her anyway.... 'I don't trust it now' is a good starting point

Its square with a top fill for the autolube, according to the serial number its a 1992 model. Just got the rest of the bits out too, if a jobs worth doing its worth doing at 1.30am.
