Does any one know how to wire the thermal sensor leads ( the double red leads ) that come out of the motor? the drawing states" nominally open and rated @ 120c" are these some kind of a shut down switch or do they go to a meter? thanks all.

They are exactly as described. There is no connection between the 2 wires so long as the motor is under 120c. The thermal switch closes, connecting the 2 wires, when the motor reaches 120c. What you do with them is up to you. The simplest thing is to use them to operate the vehicles oil pressure light.
