They look the same as my CHT probes that came with an integral wound spring strain relief.
Mine came from GRT but I image available from plenty of other sources.

Default WOW!!

That is the most amazing tool, the 360 firewall forward view of the RV 14.

I have been trying to figure out fuel lines and the manifold for oil pressure , oil temp, and fuel pressure and bingo there it is and you can magnify it as well.

Wow thanks for pointing that out Scott and OP I am in the same place as you so thanks for asking the question.

Dave

No sir. It's part of the assembly that bayonets into the CHT port on the side of the cylinder. Included with GRT's probes.
