Very interesting. I spent many an hour (and internet searches) looking for the correct sender for my 1971 Zodiac MK4 Executive (the water pump, rad, engine etc were in good order). Trying out various senders always gave me HOT temp (near or in the red) reading on the temp gauge, and that with the water temp in the rad being about 90C. Even our MK4 club was not able to fathom out my problem! However, I was given to be-leave that the sender has to match the temp gauge. So I ended up with a White Spade Fitting. Now with the car at working temp the temp gauge reads just above the blue. The ohm readings in the above listing are close to what I have gotten. Engine cold = 1500 Ohms, Engine working temp = 106 Ohms. As for my 1976 SE6, I have yet to check it out. Yep,+1, stickied for reference . Cheers ...> Alan
