What temperature gauge have you fitted? Electric or mechanical, and what connection is on the end? What does it screw into? Thanks. Looking good, btw.
This temperature gauge is electric.. It is screw in the motor'head. Works very well..

Many thanks. I feel a little lost and worry a lot without a water temperature gauge. Then again, I shall probably worry about the readings I'll get if I had one...

After a while without post anything, and without much time around the Maria Canela restoration, i don't bring much news.. But... After this time I checked the leak on the carburetor increase, so i will try to fix it my myself, i already bought a kit. An old mechanic told me the principal source of this leaks are in the bad measure of the float. I don't understand any thing about this.. But i will try..

The seats and trim denote the Savane model and were unique to this model run, I have the same stickers on the outside, door cards but seats where changed by a previous owner, you might also find the engine is a 956cc
