I just picked up a 1994 PS205 LT1 boat yesterday. I am way over my head with this boat. My biggest concern and I want to get it taken care of is the Temperature gauge is not working. I have ordered new fuel filters, impeller, thermostats etc from Vince and Skidim so I am going to put those all in when they arrive later this week. But we want to use the boat tomorrow so I need to get a temp sending unit ASAP, as I think the gauge is ok.

My question is...Will any NAPA or GM temp sending unit work for the 94 LT1 engine? Or do I need to get a MC specific unit.

Thanks for the help!

Does anyone by any chance have any pictures, as to where I would find the sending unit.

Thanks,

Make sure you get two thermostats. One is a 142 and the other is a 160 with a small hole drilled in it. (see attached for locations)

I think the temp sending unit is just a small screw in sort of sensor on ?????
