Hello Dave, my name is***** will assist you.This engine normally does not have a temp gauge installed on it. We need to make sure that someone has installed the proper sensor on the engine before we can troubleshoot it, can you pull the top cowling on the engine to look at the cylinder head?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It is an original factory/ dealer installation. I will send you some photos.
Expert:  Charles replied 1 year ago.
Photos would be great thanks. If you could get one of the cylinder hear of the engine, that would help also.

I messaged the photos to your phone no.

(###) ###-#### ***** you get the photos? I also emailed them. If you did not receive them, then send me the number or email to resend. I have been charged the 26$ of only to be told that my engine doesn't normally have a temp. sensor that it clearly has. If you don't have the correct info on my engine , then just say so and I will stop wasting time trying to contact you or ever using this service again. Dave

Dave, I do not know know whose number that you sent the pics to. What was the email address that you sent them to? I will see if I can track them down.
Expert:  Charles replied 1 year ago.
Dave, Your engine has what is called a temp sensor from the factory, it is used only for the alarm. Now if someone added a temp sender to the engine, that would be for a gauge. That is what I am needing the pics of. Try and upload them to then send me the link and I can see then from there.I have had your account searched, and we do not show any emalis from your email address in the last 7 years.

My question is why you cannot provide me with an email or tel. Number that works for sending the pictures. The tinypic site does not allow me to send pictures that I already have taken- more time wasted and I have to launch the boat this weekend. Dave

Dave, I cannot give out my personal information on the question page. This is an open page that the entire internet can see. If you wished to move to the phone or to email. I have submitted you the offer for that Premium service. For a good email to upload to, please follow this link, at the bottom if the instructions you will see an email address to load the pics to. Reference this question and that you are working with me and they will forward the pics to me.
