Your testing theory is correct - you should get a reading in the region of 100-2000 Ohm area depending if it’s hot or cold between the spade and earth. Exact figures isn’t critical but around 100 ohms for hot, 2-3000 for cold, plus or minus 20%. It’s not a calibrated instrument :lol:

Good day all,

well, before setting of to work on Ti, about three miles from work and as i finish at 11:30, thought i would check the temp gauge sender wire.
All was attached and looking okay, i disconnected and gave it a quick rub with some p100 sand paper and reconnected...no difference , my gauge swept to hot straight away....
Proceeded about 2miles..and the car died, i coasted to the side and noted no activity on the tacho whist it tried to start...humm popped the bonnet.
Checked\wiggled the wires on the coil and loom nearby.....car started and the temp gauge worked.. :?
I wish wiggling wires not part of a temp fix, will check the loom\wires at the weekend...

Ta

Manny

Sounds like the standard issue 1800TI fried loom syndrome...

Check the back of the clock set for damaged sections on any parts of the laminated circuit. Rev counter INOP is usually because there's a crack in the section running around the corner to the back of the dial.

Could well explain your coolant temp gauge issue also.
