I just replaced the oil temp sender, and the gauge still isn't reading... I am thinking a broken wire somewhere from the sender to the wireloom, or maybe something to do with the instrument cluster.

Any ideas?

Bryan,
one way of checking ground the end
of the wire to the engine and have some
one turn the ignition on to run but do
not start the engine. the temp gauge
needle should move all the way. this will indicate that there is no problem with your wire
if it does not move,then it is posible that there
is a break between wire from the sender end to the cluster end.if it turn out that the wire is good and your sender is new then the problem is in your gauge. goodluck
