Sensor has just a one wire lead, I know it worked until I switched heads. The old heads were an old casting, so the sender wasn't original. When i swaped heads, I simply ordered a sender for an 85 firebird, and installed, plugged in and that was it. Then I thought maybe the PO had installed some form of resistor in case the sender read differently then the factory. So I traced the wire back into the harness and could find nothing. I just went out now, and pulled all the thread sealer of and reinstalled, no frustrating
