Re: Oil temp sensor
The EOT is on the backside of the HPOP reservoir, actually, a little ways down from the top. Drain the HPOP oil until it's below the sensor, unplug the sensor and remove it w/ a 1" socket (if I remember right). Replace w/ new EOT, reconnect, refill HPOP reservoir and you're good to go.
My limited experience is that a bad EOT can cause a poor idle. Mine got to idling fairly roughly; a new EOT ($15 from IH) smoothed it out. Smoothed it out at all RPM's and loads, actually.
