MG MGB GT V8 Factory Originals Technical - VDO Gauges
|Hi, 1977 MGB supercharged|
I am not doing a engine conversion, but it seems many of you used these VDO gauges in their comversion.
1. I would like to ask if the OEM water temperature sending unit will work with the VDO gauge 310-104, 240/33 ohms 220 total degrees. Just about the same as the OEM?
If not I read the OEM sender is a 5/8" thread size?
2. I know the stock fuel sender will work with # 310-105 and rated 240/33 ohms....
3. Now the Oil Gauge. Will the OEM oil sender work with # 350-107 also rated 240/33. 100psi total.
I was looking at the only VDO sending unit for this gauge which is the R9279B 230/33, and has 1/8 NPTF. Just not sure if this would work?
Sorry if I intruded on this forum, but you have the best answers for this question.
I think the VDO Vision set will look nice in my car. Any help making a complete set would be helful.
Order I will place if correct:
150-121 VDO Vision Black Boost Gauge
370-152 VDO Vision Black Clock
333-160 VDO Vision Black Tachometer
437-155 VDO Vision Black Speedometer
332-103 VDO Vision Black voltmeter
301-105 VDO Vision Black Fuel Gauge
350-107 VDO Vision Black Oil Temperature
310-104 VDO Vision Black Water Temperature
Again not sure on senders?????????If I need them???

The senders are rather cheap to get new and then your assured they will read correctly. As for the thread size, they make a bushing kit that will work for the Oil gauge, or you can go to O'Rileys and get one. I would get the VDO sender for the Oil Pressure at least.
Stock MG is a mechanical gauge, are you ussing that type of VDO or the more common electric?
I am using the electric VDO gauges.
