I would check with both VDO and Yanmar to find out what the thread and pitch of the stock sensor in the engine is. SOMETIMES you get lucky, and the stock sensor can be replaced with one that has two output connections--one for the alarm, and the other for a gauge. There really are such things, and it can be worth calling different gauge makers to find out if they make one that matches the thread/pitch of the stock sender.
