I have an 85 with the good ol Iron Duke. i would like to install an aftermarket temperature gauge while keeping the factory one connected. Is there a way I can use the aftermarket one without removing the sensor for the factory one? I was looking on the head could not find another hole I could use. Hopefully I missed one.
I was mainly doing it to be different and also I don't like or trust the factory gauges. From my other GM cars, the guages is usally never correct. Plus I like the ability to see what the temp will actually be and not have to guess what it "might" be.

I added a Autometer aftermarket guage on a "A" piler mount. I bought a "T" fitting that would fit into the oil pressure sender mount on the block and mounted both senders in it. Had it like that for about 3 years, worked great. Oh, almost forgot, I ran my own wiring for the gauges lighting and sending. Good luck. I got pics if you want.
