with the warmer, humid weather my external temp readout is fading in and out again. i figured it's time for some minor surgery on that thermosensor by the license plate. so i dug up those old threads and was pleasantly surprised to find part numbers for the replacement sensor. went on to the newark electronics site and ordered one (did i say one, i meant three!!! - but they wouldn't let me change my order after i submitted it
). the part came today and it wasn't exactly what i was expecting. i mean those leads are thin! so, a couple of questions:
- i have a 100W soldering gun and a 40w iron - use the iron right?
- the smallest shrink tubing i have is what's shown in the picture, should i butt it right up to the head?
- where can i get conductive paste / wax - is that readily available?
