Temperature Gauges

I was talking with an RAF motorsprt RD racer, yesterday at the RAF Cosford Airshow, and picked up a few hints and tips. The most important one being that of fitting temperature gauges as seen on the ebay link above. An essential for fine tuning your motor and early detection of a piston melting situation!!!  :'( :'(

Anyway they are available, but quite costly :o . My question is does anyone know of a cheaper source for these under plug fitted temp gauges?

Most of the raf lads get them from the states but they still aren’t cheap.

They are about £50 each plus postage!!!  :o

I have ordered some parts off ebay and intend to have a go at making some for myself. Total price for 2 is £15 so far! I'll upldate the post with pictures when I get the parts and get it working.
