My car came with a couple Omori older (& now discontinued) 60mm mechanical gauges for oil temp & water temp and I am looking to move them without tearing up my whole interior...
Looking at the back of either gauge, I've unscrewed the thumb screw that secures the protective curled wire over the stiff (brass? copper?) "sending" wire..
But I can't seem to pull the stiff sending wire out of the gauge... is it not supposed to come out?
If it doesn't come out then what's the point of this thumb screw? What role does it serve?
Does that mean I have to chase the "sending" wire all the way to the engine, unhook it there, pull it out of the engine harness in order to move the gauge to its new location?
I feel like I'm doing something wrong here...
