temp gauge inop

I just purchased a 94 e350 w/7.3 IDI engine. My temp gauge is not working. Can someone point me in the right direction? Where does the gauge pick up its reading from? Is there a way to test the gauge itself?

Cheers,
Peter

the sending unit for the gauge is screwed into the top of the water pump, unplug it and ground it to the engine , see if the gauge mioves , may have to cycle the key , then leave it disconnected to see if it moves , if the gauge doesnt do anything , your gauge is bad , if im not mistaken , its a red and white wire, whe n you ground it the gauge should top out
