My Acewell came with a temperature sending unit. I am using it for oil temp:


It is the M10x1.0 thread:




Sending unit seated in place:


I used a crush washer and some gasket compound. No leaks so far:


Still no leaks:


On a water cooled bike one could use the sending unit for water temp, but for our old airheads why not use it for oil temp? It does function properly and I now have an oil temp reading on my Ace:
