Default Need help on where to mount temp gages on old country pecos

I have a old country pecos and I bought two 2in temp gages and everyone says to mount them a grate level. My question is how far above grate level and should they be centered between the handle and the and the end of the door. Also should I lower the 3in temp gage that is already in the middle of the door now?

I would put them where you were thinking, level with the handle, maybe a little higher. Leave the existing one where it is, that way there's no hole repair required.

I agree and as for the heighth above the grate I'd go with an inch or so.
