9020 oil temp sensor

Recommended Posts


 The oil temp sensor was jamed in the rear end casting and I damaged it when I changed the oil. All the simplicity dealers around me are gone and I am asking if there is a replacement part I could use.

I am pretty sure it is a standard automotive temp sensor from that era. I would take it to an auto parts store , a good counterman should be able to hook you up. I think mine has a temp rating stamped on it on the inside.

Merle if not there it should be on front toward engine on right lower side, you probably have a plug there, like 1/2 in. pipe plug

Here's picture without the hydro unit. Hope this helps

Guys if you find, please post any info on temp sender replacement with automotive part.  I am interested and I'm sure others as well.

If it is just a switch and not a variable resistance to run a gauge, any sender would work with the proper temp rating (which I have know idea what that would be for a hydro).

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
