From 35-39 the water temperature is measured by a gauge as part of the gauge is the sending unit, they are one assembly. Photo below is 36 temperature gauge.

Terry,OH is correct but a '35 and '36 will not fit your original instrument cluster if you are still using it. '37-'39 are the same but the face is different. I have originals or rebuilt ones by Rudy Faultermeir. I would suggest an original since the fluid in rebuilt ones most likely will fade.

Williamson's Instruments will put a new bulb on your old gauge.
