Yes, comparing listings and part numbers on MGOC, Moss and B&G websites shows that they are the same. The fittings are the same threads etc the only difference being the distance to the front of the engine, but there is more than enough length in the capillary to reach.

A dilemma in my current resto is whether to go for the Fahrenheit scale per original, or Centigrade, which actually means something to me (i.e. boiling point of water is 100 degrees (OK I know that the pressurisation and some coolants raise the boiling point!))

Regards
Chris

Go Fahrenheit Chris!

If for no other reason than giving you the pleasure of explaining to a passenger worrying about the temp gauge showing 190 degrees that it’s all fine!
