Default Water Temp Gauge Sender Install Options

A buddy of mine is giving me his old gauge set up and one of them is a water temp, and seeing how I track my car with NASA, I'd like to do this just to be safe

Get a 1/8 npt threaded T-piece with female connectors.
Then use 2 barbed 1/8nptx3/8 hose pillars.
Screw them in, and then hardsolder the 2 connections.
