Default Omori EGT guage: problems

I've had the guage in for about a month, and have noticed that whenever it's wet out, the guage temp drops dramatically--sometimes almost not even reading. When it dries up outside, no more problems--the guage seems to read and respond normally. Any suggestions as to the cause, or even better, how to fix this? Thanks,

Pat

hey, where did you guys mount your EGT probe? I just got my Omori gauges and am trying to figure out what is going to be involved in getting this to work.

Not sure exactly where... I had a friend of mine do the work, and he tapped the manifold on the driver's side. Hope this helps.

Mine is on the Passenger side manifold on the casting button right where the two cylinders come together. I had to take it apart to replace my uppipe gasket anyway so I put it there, I've heard the drivers side is a little easier if that's all you're doing. -James

how difficult is it to tap the manifold?? I would rather do it myself then pay for someone to do it. But I also dont want to mess anything up.

I think it was harder getting it off and back on than tapping it. You just drill a hole then use the tapping bit back and forth about a half a turn at a time until it's through. I would do a search on the web for the correct procedure but it's not that hard, just make sure you keep it straight.
