Why couldn't you use the original sender and then find a bushing to reduce the pipe thread or vise versa into the manifold?

Your '53 temp gauge should read right with the '76 sender if you convert your '53 gauge cluster to 12V by using the Ford CVR from the back of a 60's or 70's gauge cluster. ..B.
