    Water Temperature Sensor Adapter

    Hey all,

    Does anyone know if there are any water temperature sensor adapters on the market that have an additional fitting for a return line from the top radiator hose to the coolant reservoir?
    I'm planning on fitting a water temperature gauge to the Corolla, but i'd prefer to replace the part shown in the picture than go and cut up a perfectly good radiator hose.

    Cheers.
    - Jesse

    Looks very fiddly.... Never seen an adaptor with two outlets.

    Might be worth taking it to a shop and getting an adaptor put on to your thermostat housing.

    another option would be drill and weld a return pipe into a sender tube that you buy so it has 1 thread for sender and 1pipe for return line.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys, and sorry for my late reply too.

    I'd been doing some digging around not long ago and came across this dual outlet sedner adapter...

    It'll probably require some minor modification to attatch a suitable fitting for the return line, but it will make a good starting point i guess.
