Does anyone know how to test one of these gauges to see if it works? I restored my car about 7 years ago and replaced all of the gauges. It already had gauges, and the temp gauge worked great for 7 years, now quit. I bought a new one at Classic, and can't get that to work either. There is power at the plug that goes into the gauge. Frustrating! Maybe I got another bad guage? Not sure how to test it...I have it out of the car on the bench now. Thanks...

Maybe there was nothing wrong with your other gauge either but the engine block temp sender has gone nips up.

You can bench test the sender with a pot of boiling water or test it in the block using your ohms meter. Everett has posted the ohms at various temp pointed many times. A search should produce the bench testing guide.
