So can anyone tell me where I can buy a new temp gauge setup to replace the original that is not working for my 52 Super w straight 8?
 
I had mine rebuilt. I like that route because then all the gauge faces are weathered the same. I could look up the name of the rebuilder if you are interested.
 
I also had mine rebuilt, for the same reason you need the services (broke off the temp sensor in the head). Try Gold Star, 13804 Cienega Road Hollister, CA 95023. (I don't have a phone number.) Cost me $80 in 2012.

If I remember correctly, if you screw in the temp. sender into the block, and then use to long go a bolt to hold the rocker arm mount to the head it will reach all the way to the temp. sender, then you break the sender trying to get it out because it is held by the rocker arm support bolt.

You are correct!
