    The part I received does not match the picture in the 105eoc shop. And it hardly fits to my engine.

    I ordered CS08/LGB

    If you compare it to the one I received you can see that its not the same layout.

    The new sensor I got from the shop is the upper one in the following picture with the seal and the lower one is the defective one I removed from my engine (105e 997cc, novembre 1960).
    See the difference where the two sensors get tight, the new/upper one has a gasket that goes over the thread just below the hexagonal part. The old/bottom one has a chamfer to the left of the thread that seals against the head inside the bore.

    In this picture you see that the new sensor can not go enough into the head to apply pressure to the gasket. It wont even touch. I had to use two copper rings to thighten this sensor.

    In my opinion, this sensor does not fit to my engine correctly, so I whish the club sources another type of sensor.

    I hope the pictures I linked are visible for everyone.

    Hi Tueffti , I expect the club spares folk will answer soon. Looking on internet a number of suppliers offer Senders , some picture the old type & some the type you got sent, various prices.
    If the copper washers don’t work out, plumbers PTFE tape or sealer (eg Fernox XL-S)on the tread might

    Does this “new” design give the correct reading on the gauge ?

    Hi Brianw

    Thanks for your reply.
    So far the two copper washers work well and the sender gives plausible results.
    I can life with that sender for the moment but hope the club will at least change the image in the shop.
    Even better, if he sources a sender that realy fits the engine

    Cheers
    Rolf

    Update:
    I had an exchange with Garry who confirmed the senders seem to be coded in red or black since production of the Anglias in that way. So choosing the black one to replace the black coded defective sender turned out to be the right choise in my case.
    So the sender works fine for me even with the two copper washers.

    The parts description has already been updated:
    _______________________________________________
    There are two variations in resistance ranges, which are denoted by the coloured ring. Choosing the wrong one may result in the gauge not reading correctly.

    Depending on your original head, you may have had a tapered or straight threaded sensor originally fitted, and depending on our current stock, a tapered or straight threaded sensor may be supplied. A tapered sensor one will fit any head but the straight threaded may have to have a washer behind it for some heads to seal.
    _______________________________________________

    Thanks Garry for your interventions.

    Cheers Rolf
