This EGT clamp kit is used for exhaust systems that do not have provision for accepting the 8x1 thread of a EGT probe. In this case a small hole the same size at the probe tip is drilled into the exhaust manifold and the probe inserted and held in place with the clamp kit. The clamp kit includes a drilled stainless steel band with galvanised adjuster. A 8x1 metric fine pitch nut is included to hold the probe in place.
Super easy to mount. However, these ones had shorter wires than the MGL EGT probes I already had. Luckily, I could put these on the back cylinders...
This is a 1 probe. Too long for the Rotax 447 engine.
Very disappointed. Very short wiring length, requiring extensions even on the cylinder next to the firewall.

The length of the probe cable is 3ft 1in. (37 inches total) Per MGL, if you need the wire extended, you would need standard Type-K extension wire.
This is a type-K thermocouple, and the max I.D. is 2.35", so should work for larger pipes.
1 inch into the exhaust pipe and .196 in diameter.
This probe gets its ground when it is installed.
