Ambient temp gauge

PostPost by: mcclelland » Mon Jun 04, 2018 11:29 am

Hi all,

I need to know the mounting point details for the ambient temp sensor bulb which goes in the nose. A photo if possible would be much appreciated.

Many thanks, regards, George.

It mounts in a metal loop fixed to the front of the air filter body.

Mine is fixed with the metal loop but on to the floor of the air intake just inside the nose
