Default Putting Temp gage on 80 HP Merc OB

I like gages more than warning horns, so can i put a temp gage onto a 1988, 3 cylinder, 80 HP Merc? If I hook right into the temp sensor wire, will that do it?

If you look on the head, there should be a 1/8 NPT port with a plug in the plate, you can put a temp sender there, personaly I prefer a pressure gauge, but either one is as good as the other.

I put the guage in and uncovered another problem.... My thermostat was sticking so engine temperature never got to normal operating temperature. The thermostat was put in new the beginning of last season. The horn never picked up a problem since the motor never got hot. I replaced the thermostat, and I'm all set. Boat and motor are ready to catch fish.
