Looking into this some more for the combination gauges in my truck. I have a few part numbers, see if this jives with anything.
  • 1FZ temp sender is 83420-16040
  • 3F-E, 22R-E, 3VZ temp sender is 83420-16010 (superseeded to 83420-20020)
  • I think the 5VZ temp sender is 83420-16020
So if anyone's done the 50 and 110 ohm resistor mod on a 1991 or 1992 FJ80, then the same modification will work on 22R-E and 3VZ trucks. If the temp sender on Red Chili's engine drives your dash gauge to the same spot as with the old engine, then it's probably got a similar profile. Anyone have an extra 83420-16010 temp sender? We can verify it's response and either do the same values or adjust them slightly to the right profile.

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
