I like Joe's find. Still have to watch the max temp, though.

I like the temperature switch very much, thanks! Now I just need a little trial and error to sort out the right temperature range.

Joe is the operating voltage not an issue?

No, the operating voltage is not a concern. The switch is rated for 2 amps at 24 VDC. That probably equates to 3 or 4 amps at 12 volts. If an indicator lamp is chosen that uses less than 1 amp, it should be fine. The switch is available as either normally open or normally closed. There is a 50-50 chance of getting it right. The original poster probably wants the normally closed switch. Another concern is selecting the correct operating temperature. And there is the life expectancy issue when subject to the vibration of a 2 cycle engine.

A tiny keychain size infra red thermometers for $12. might be more
useful and less trouble to set up.
No calibration issues and fairly vibration resistant.
Remote mounting of the display might be possible.

Is it feasible to mount the infrared red thermometer, suggested by YellowDuck, inside of the cockpit and use a fiber optic cable to transmit the engine heat through the firewall to the thermometer?
