Default Coolant temp sender

As some of you may remember, I had a heck of a time swapping out the intake gaskets, and still had a residual coolant leak. I believe I have that resolved (wrong bolt). I had another issue develop while working on it.

While reinserting all of the connectors, we broke the coolant temp sender on the back side of the engine (old, dry plastic). I replaced that and tested the car. During first idle, the temp started going up fine, once it got to about 180-200 (180 t-stat), seemed like the fans kicked in, and the gauge went to zero, and never moved. I havent' gotten a chance to go out and reinsert it yet. Thought I would solicit suggestions before doing to. I noticed that it only has one wire going into the connector, and didn't know if that was normal. Any help would be appreciated.

In 95 the sensor under the TB has two wires. I never got around to the gauge sender which is the one you are speaking of....although I do know in many cases it was a single wire on other gm cars.
