A mechanical temperature gauge is a sealed system with a bulb sensor and capillary tube pre-assembled to the gauge. This assembly is a fixed length and cannot be cut.
The sensor bulb must be installed in the water jacket where the stock electrical temperature sender is now.
The oil pressure gauge requires a small tube from the oil pressure port, where the stock sender is located on the engine, to the gauge.
