Item Number: 2436
This water temperature gauge is an electric unit, like were used in 1956, 1955 gauges actually were mechanical. With the addition of Dancuk # 093, however, this unit will work just fine for 1955 applications. Stock 1955 265's will require some work on the intake to install the sending unit, but most aftermarket and later model V8 intake manifolds are already set up for one. Temperature gauge selection is based on which thermostat you are using, 160 degree or 180 degree, for accuracy. Danchuk #2436 is for 160 thermostats and will work in any 1955-1956 classic Chevy.
Danchuk has the largest selection of quality 55, 56, 57 parts for your classic Chevy project.
