With most things I do, it is two steps forward and one back. The first time out with the temperature gauge gave me a reading well above outside temperatures. I figured I was simply measuring the temperature of the emergency brake cable as I had strapped the sensor to it so I fabricated a block of closed cell foam to hold the sensor away from any part of the truck. I then strapped the foam block to a cross member underneath. Unfortunately that didn’t work any better as the heat rolling back through the driveshaft tunnel and radiating from the exhaust system still gave me an elevated temperature. Last week with temperatures briefly hitting 40, I headed out into the damp garage to extend the really short wire on the sensor and move the sensor outside the frame rails. I now seem to read a reasonable temperature, well except for the fact that actual temperatures haven’t been particularly reasonable lately.
