I expect that the IVR/stabilizer supplies both the fuel gauge & the temp gauge as it does on thousand series tractors, so a clue may be in the answer to the question, "does your fuel gauge work?"

Check the ohms of the temperature sending unit as it may be bad. Cold it should read around 400-600 ohms, when at operating temp should be around 50 ohms. Could also be a bad wire from the temp sending unit.

Pull the wire off the temp sender and ground it securely. Turn the key on and watch the gauge. If it immediately pegs in the red the gauge and wire circuit are good. Replace the sender with the CORRECT one for that cluster.
If the gauge doesn't sweep, pull the cluster back a bit and find the wire that goes from the temp gauge to the sender and make a jumper wire to ground the gauge on the sender circuit. At the same time ensure that 12V is available to the other side of the gauge... You will notice that this wire will be joined in parallel with a similar wire feeding power to the fuel gauge. Obviously if there isn't power to the gauge(s), you need to trace that back and find the problem. There is also an inline fues in the rats nest above the fuel tank. This is for the cluster power supply...
So if you have power and the guage doesn't sweep when grounded, you have a bad gauge. if it does sweep when grounded at the gauge, you have a bad sender wire.

Photobucket reduces the size of the photo so perhaps this one is not clear enough for you.
If you send me an email I will send you the original of this one. You can blow it up about 4 times this big.
