Whynot, I've not pulled one of the cyl head sensors yet. Is it configured to where part of the sending end MUST physically touch the head material? Or does it just read the temp in the air pocket there? Any other cyl head temp units I've messed with had to touch or incorrect reading. Wondering if simple vibration might make one wear say a tip to not make contact and if one were to guarantee it touched on remount would it go back to working correctly?
