reconnecting the temperature gauge sensor wire 120-130

Image posted herewith. I did all machining on a lathe with a vertical milling attachment. Something a lot more rudimentary should be possible without such machinery. The key thing is to make it so that it holds the gauge in the correct place and that it seals (to keep spiders out of the speedo housing). If I didn't have a lathe, I'd probably strip and hack the original mechanical gauge housing to fit the electrics.

The only thing you would notice if you are used to a mechanical gauge is that it switches off with the ignition. I don't usually watch the gauge after I've switched off anyhow!
