    What’s the stock water temp gauge on the FJ60? I’d like to just stay with this gauge for the diesel swap but as we know there is not temp degrees on it. What’s the upper end temp just before overheat. As for new gauges I’m looking at EGT and boost.

    This is what i would suggest doing and personally do to meet your requirements , Install a OEM YAZAKI Temp Guage that has

    YAZAKI makes Toyota FJ60 & HJ60 Cluster meters


    numbers on the face , comes with its own sending unit so theirs no guess work , the sending unit is a direct bolt in to your Toyota engine sensor union port


    comes with all mounting hardware & instructions

    I have a few of these let me know if its something your interested in

    the guage is standard size to fit a POD or other common mounting system

    Degrees Celsius, I guess that’ll make it feel a little more foreign. I’d like to get one in Fahrenheit. Thanks @RAGINGMATT. How much are those gauges?

    The only way to find out what the temperature is on your stock gauge when the needle gets near the top is to calibrate it. Every sender/gauge combo is a bit different. That Yazaki gauge looks fun, but it's in °C and has to go in a pod. Might as well get an Autometer gauge to do that. At least you'll get a °F dial and customer support.

    OEM/direct bolt on is hard to beat.

    80 celsius =176F
    100 celsius= 212F

    If it runs in between those marks on the one @RAGINGMATT posted you are good

    Forgive me if I missed it... will the Yazaki fit into the factory spot on an FJ60 cluster?

    it would Not be a direct replacement , more of a custom install like in a Gauge Pod
