    He going to do red with normal white boards but Adamo's number 26 will be entirely exposed CF. Same on the front.

    These arrived today. Why? because you never know when you'll need to spontaneously change your brake calipers.

    Satandard 851/888

    p.s. Plus, you have to use the matching temp sensor. The 996 one won't read correctly in conjunction with the 851/888 temp. gauge.

    Ok, I guess I'll try to enlarge the hole without butchering it.

    Did I misunderstand or didn't Marvin say it wouldn't work with the ST4S harness?

    Wait a minute--why would an air cooled motor have a temp gauge?

    I was under the impression that even though it's used for the "oil" temp on the 900ss, that it could be used as the plug in is identical on a 851/888?

    I know they have an oil temp gauge but didn't think those would be similar enough to the coolant temp ones. Anyway--can anyone definitively saw whether they would work for coolant with an ST4S sensors and harness?

    The way I would find out it to plug it in and try it. Or I guess one could use a VOM and check the resistance. I would also compare the resistance of the 851/88 sensor against the ST4S.

    BTW, If I were going to try and enlarge the hole in that CF dash I would use a flex-shft (or a dremel, Yuck) and grind it. Wear a respirator and gloves, those CF splinters are nasty as is the dust!

    When I worked for Parker Guitars I had some experience with CF as our fretboards were CF and glass cloth. We tried water jet to trim the edges which worked only marginally well but ended up using a saw with a diamond blade. Our frets were stainless, rockwell 56, so that did compound the problem.
