Temp gauge not reading

Electrical

Vehicle Information: Model: 912; Year: 1967; Body Type: Coupe; Engine (type, size, modifications): 1.6; Total Mileage: unknown;

I bought the car after it sat in a field for 5 years and the temp gauge didn't work. I bought a new sensor for the engine, plugged the wire in and still nothing. I had a shop look at it a few weeks ago and they told me they had grounded the wire and the gauge went all the way to the hot side. I put a multi-meter on both ends of the wire and got a reading, however I read in DC not Ohms so I'll redo that tomorrow. Any idea what the problem is?
