CYLINDER HEAD TEMPERATURE GAUGE
Why do you need a CHT gauge?
If you drive an air cooled or in fact any vehicle this CHT gauge will tell you a lot about the state of tune of your engine. VW Campers with Type 4 engines and other air cooled vehicles especially those with stock fuel injection, have a tendency to run hot.
Overheating an aircooled engine will often result in damage to the cylinder head valve seats, the so-called "dropped seat" syndrome. A properly installed CHT gauge can help prevent this sort of catastrophe.
Since air-cooled vehicles like vintage VW's and Porsche's do not have any coolant inside the engine, we measure the engine heat by reading the temperature of the cylinder head in the spark plug area. This area of the head gets very hot and is an excellent indicator of the operating parameters of the engine as a whole.
The temperature measurement is cold junction compensated for high accuracy. Very few CHT gauges on the market have the cold junction compensation circuit. Most of them cost several times more than this gauge.
