EGT guage going crazy!

I have a stewart werner EGT guage and i installed it in my hauler and now when i start it it pegs it then when im going for a drive it goes down to 200 then up to 400 i checked the probeand put sealant on it to keep from grounding out. still does it.then i swapped the probewire around ran the power leads straight to the battery and same thing could i have a faulty guage ?.i called the place were i got it and they will not return my calls. i payed $300 for these and i need an answer. were could i find a vendor that sells this brand. when i bught them i was told that they were the best thing on the market im thinking they were wrong.

Stewart Warner gauges suck. I hate those things.

Re: EGT guage going crazy!

I would sell them on ebay and buy some real gauges from a sponsor that stands behind their products. I am going through a similar situation and the problem is being handled in a very professional manner and I am contacted on a daily basis on what is going on.

Re: EGT guage going crazy!
