Hi,
I recently purchased a water temperature gauge for my 1963 Ford 4000. I removed the old non-functioning probe and gauge from my tractor and tried to replace it with the gauge I purchased at Tractor Supply for my specific tractor. The probe would not fit. When I looked, I found that the old probe had a diameter of 0.341" but the replacement probe was 0.375". When inquired with Yesterday's Tractor Company, they said all their replacement gauges had probes that were 0.375". My tractor was not typical. I have two questions. Should I drill out the hole in my engine block to match the 0.375" (3/8ths) or try to find the right gauge. The info I could find on my tractor is:

1963 Ford 4000 801/901 style of tractor

41201 <>37822<> Engine Casting - CONN 6015J

Thank you

1963 would make that a 4 cylinder and NO I sure would not drill it out. What you might be finding it the ones for the 3 cylinder models. If I where you I would check what the ones for say the 801 series tractor are since the engines in the 801 is the same as the 4000 4 cylinders just newer with a few upgrades

Did the old bushing come out when you removed the old prob?
I just went out and looked at a another 4000 head and tried the new prob from this site and it would not go in so I looked in the hole and the old bushing was still in the head. I tried to pick it out
with no luck so I pushed the new prob in till it was tight and it came out. If it didn't I would have used an easy out.

No, a bushing did not come out. Thank you. I will check that tonight to see if this is the problem. This would make sense.

Thank you

You were right, the bushing was still pressed in the hole. I used and easy out and got the bushing out. Thank you so much.
