coolant temp gauge

I just bought a 95 F250 7.3Lthe coolant temp gauge is not working. Changed the coolant temp sensor and still nothing. Voltage at signal wire on sensor is 3.6 volts. Is this normal?

Stick a screwdriver or pin into the sensor connector and touch it to ground. The gauge should peg to the right. If it does, it's good and you've got a wiring problem (or you replaced the wrong sensor). If it does not, the gauge head is bad.
