Well what I'm finding is it depends more on the engine number. Engines leading up through V002172 used part number 91 82 270. Engine starting V002173 used 91 82 205.

Thats what I've got from EPC for motors in 1996-1998.

Unmarked In the Saab Parts Catalogue For Years,"untill 2000" The Gauge Sender By the Tstat up to 97 was A PIPE thread.. Halfway in 97 it Became a Stanadard Pitch with the Aluminum washer. Not intershangable But Both Function the Same. You just Need the Correct One for You specific Model year Head.

We ran into this when doing my headgasket because the head I was putting on was from a 94 9000. As my car's factory temp sensor was from a 99, it was too big to fit in the hole in the head from the 9000. We ended up using a brass fitting as a reducer and it has been fine now for 10k miles and about 5 months.

Or Just Use the Old Sender It only operates the Dash Gauge. On the 9k. not so on T7 Cars though

In our situation the original sensor wire had been cut when the engine was taken out. In our search for one of these from eEuro, etc we couldn't fine one.

They don't usually stock anything older than 1999.

We went to an industrial hydraulic shop with the two temp sensors. I do remember we could only get something in a standard size, but with a good amount of thread sealer it is holding just fine.

went to the same shop today because the sender on the '95 9000 is different than the '99 head i just put on my car. they had a metric converter, the gauge reads a little low but it still reads which was my biggest concern. the thread on a 98+ 4cyl head is actually identical to the wheel bolts. random coincidence. so take one of those and the sensor to a hydraulics shop and they should be able to set you up with something.

The old sensor is too big For the hole on the 95 9000 head. I need to find the size of the smaller hole.

the thread on the 9000 is nearly 1/8" so close that with teflon tape it'll work.

Just Go get A 9000 Sender. The One that Fitts the 9000 Head. The Properties Of Both sensors are IDENTICAL... And It Looks right Without some "RIG" Because it is right.
