A light temp sensor would just be a off/on switch, but a gauge one would be variable.
I tried to be normal once, worst two minutes of my life.

I used it for years without any problems, however you have to remember that it's a permanent watertight solution and it's not just stretchy electricians tape, I've found the best way to remove it is to slice it along the wire with a Stanley knife.
I recently took down some hame radio aerials which I had sealed the coaxial joints up with self amalgamating tape some 30 old years ago, I stripped the joints apart and they were still bone dry.
If you want pretty try some heat shrink sleeving on top of the self amalgamating tape. :thumbsup:

Removed the inlet manifold and leaking oil cooler mount. Then feet up in front of fire with a mug of tea. :thumbsup:

I also found that there is a crankcase bolt missing on the top of the engine behind the oil cooler. So possible oil leaking from that area.
