Just jumpered across each wire between the two sensors, and each wire going to the gauge to check continuity, then check the temp gauge to see if any change occurs. Then I grounded the temp gauge to make sure it went all the way to "cold" then took off the jumper and it returned to "Hot" (with the ignition switch on) to verify that the gauge is working.

Sometimes simpler is better.
Be aware that the left sender is not really not variable. It is just on or off. . . . unless somebody replaced it with the wrong one.
