Looking for install install instructions for the temperature gauge for a Ford NAA. Looks like mine is broken and I want to make sure that I put the replacement in correctly.

It should be pretty straightforward. Take off the old one and put on the new. Part # C3NN18287A
Get the right part and you won't have deal with the capillary tube being too short or long.

Thank you!!! This is my first tractor not counting the one my grandparents owned and I need to get everything operational so I can use it with confidence.

You'll likely need to remove the top tin to access things easier.
As long as you're handy spinning a wrench, these old Fords are fairly easy to work on.
Operators and repair manuals are still available on line in reprints. Just do a search.
I highly recommend both. Operators gives one adjustments that are not in the repair manuals.

When I changed out mine on a 1957 Massey, I broke it off in the housing . Had to take the housing off , easy enough , then also changed the thermostat....unfortnunately putting the thermostat back it slipped and when I cranked the housing to secure it cracked it! Just make sure you don't force anything!
