Default McMaster-Carr EGT probe

I have heard that you can use a McMaster-Carr thermocouple as an EGT probe..I just can seem to tell which is most suitable? Anyone out there running one want to share which one they used? I have a gauge just not a suitable probe.

The easiest thing to do is buy the TC probe from mycruiseagent as he has already figured it out and will sell you just the probe. http://www.mycruiseagent.com/egt.htm

The Aircraft spruce probe is not too long, fairly quick to react and have been used in a lot of builds. I recommend them.

thanks for all the helpful responses! Hopefully an EGT will help me detect a problem before it gets disastrous!

most EGT gauges Ive come across use 'K - Type' Thermocouples. They are identifiable by the Yellow and red Wire ends at the terminal side of the probe.
