Engine temp gauge sensor for E-Class (124)

Dmitry,

John,
The anti-tow sensor was discontinued shortly after 1986, so I don't think there was ever an improved version. They just got rid of it and you may as well do the same.

plug gap

Larry,
I believe the gap spec for this engine is .031 or so. Did a gap difference of .007 really make that much difference? .. or was it because you were using the wrong plug?
