Adding temp. gauge to Yanmar 2GMF

I would like to add a temp gauge to my Yanmar 2GMF and I was hoping to gain a little understanding on how this all goes together.

I've learned that I need a VDO 3101103 gauge and a VDO 803/1/11 sender for this engine, but I'm not sure it all goes together.

The stock Yanmar control panel has a high-temp warning light/alarm which no doubt uses a sender on the engine.

So does this VDO sender replace the stock sender, or does it mount elsewhere? Do the stock temp alarm and the VDO gauge share a sender?

Hopefully someone has experience with this and can point me in the right direction - my boat is 4 hours away so I hope to have everything I need for the job before my next trip.

thanks!
