A very long life for a gasser. I had the same engine, a rebuild but eventually it had to be replaced. Has your engine been fresh water only? There are three Virmilion's listed, Ohio, Michigan and Illinois.
I know there's a lot of knowledgeable folks on here and I do appreciate the feedback but isn't there anyone out there that knows for sure where this temperature sensor goes? It's important for me to locate the old ones and replace them.
