Engine temperature sensor - has anyone added one?

After melting my #3 piston, I want to add a temperature sensor to monitor #3 and/or #4. I found a 12MM CHT SENSOR designed for air cooled engines to be attached under an engine bolt or spark plug. Has anyone added this type of sensor or any other?

Thanks

Has a Pinzgauer ever been taken on Die Trying trail in Colorado?

Re: 3M Adhesive Remover

Did you replace with standard weather strip from SAV or something else?

Re: Removing exterior access storage boxes from "K" interior

Someone told me these are primarily glued in, but I can't recall the specifics of the conversation. Anyone know the best way to dissolve the glue?

Re: Engine cover sound and heat reduction

I’ve read that many times :) . Vince briefly mentions lining an engine cover on the inside and then having an upholstery shop cover the outside. I’m looking for other experiences with doing this as well as specific materials for lining.

Engine cover sound and heat reduction

Looking for advise and experience on the best materials to add to the underside and upper side of the engine cover to reduce both sound and heat. I have seen some products from Dynamat and other sound control companies, but would like to hear experience before ordering.

Thanks,

Jake

Door Gaskets

Look at past discussion of replacing door gaskets and most links are outdated. Does anyone have recent supplier of door gaskets materials?

Re: Anyone opened rear door locking mechanism?

Thanks, that helped a bit. My mechanism was glued in with silicone and something else. Got it out only to find that the keyed lock is separate and the locking pin was gummed up so the spring wouldn’t release it. Now I just have to figure out what is in the wrong position to allow the pull knob lock ...
