Good Morning Gentlemen!
Would someone please describe how the temperature gauge tube is routed between the radiator upper elbow and the right side of the instrument panel?
Maybe under the gas tank? Locations of securing clips? Unfortuately, I did not take notes and the tractor is not immediately available.
Thank you for your time and knowledge.

Jack

I have a 1952 DC-4 and a 1953 DC-3 and they both have a 1/2 tube that screw's onto the upper side of the block above the Magneto, the temperature tube goes thru this 1/2 tube. Then the temperature tube loops under the gas tank. This 1/2 tube is slightly shorter than the block and there are two screws that secure the 1/2 tube to the block. Hope this helps, Merwin

Ran mine down the right side of the engine block through the wiring cover. I don't know if that is "correct" or not.

I have mine routed as you describe. The problem I have is the line/tubing on my generic guages is probably a foot or more too long. Thus I have a loop or two under the gas tank which is quite visable/unattractive. Are proper length ones available?

I didn't have to coil any extra up. Got it from John Saeli

Thank you all for your comments..they help! While I have seen pictures of the half tube, of course it was missing when I first saw the tractor.

Thanks again.

Jack
