Overview

Since Bayonet CHTs are made with short length leads, extending them is often necessary. CHTs and EGTs should be extended with type-K extension wire directly to the RDAC, or if the RDAC is mounted outside the engine compartment (or if you are connecting directly to a Single instrument) then type-K extension should be used at least until the sender lead exits the engine compartment (where temps are high).

The CHT/EGT extension kit includes type-K thermocouple wire. Splice barrels and a length of meltable-inner heat shrink tubing will be required for installation, Raychem SCL-3/16 heat shrink is recommended per manufacturer.. This heat shrink gets quite soft inside when it is heated up which eliminates all air inside the splice and makes an airtight seal.
