Thermistor

I have a yanmar engine and have been told the thermistor is bad. However it is a schwiess mower so parts are nearly impossible. The john deere dealer told me if i bring it in they can more then likely cross reference it. However i can not seem to locate it. Does anyone have a picture of what it would look like i don't really know what I'm looking for and google searches are coming up empty. Thanks for the help!

It should have a metal fuel line bolted to it, looks kinda of like a oil presure switch.

It shouldnt, a thermister is whats used to start a cold engine instead of glow plugs.
