K-type thermocouple.

I think they're fairly standard; but don't know for sure.

K-type, bendable thermocouple. My Mercury's had one that looked like it came straight from an electronics/measurement catalog, connector and all.

That's great Chuck. My father in law lives in Friendswood close to that small subdivision airport.

Polly Ranch? That's a NICE older little neighborhood. Bet there's nothing like waking up, going out to the "garage" and flying off your own, private airport! It was the place in its hay day, where astronauts lived. Still, some neat little planes fly out of there. Landing pattern is over my house...

yep, Polly Ranch. They live on Pine dr. around the corner. That place is tight with houses though and one of the narrowest runways I've seen for full size planes.

Really? The thermocouples were his own product. Strange
