Other 보다 the factory port in ~ the behind of the block under the intake and also exhaust, space there any kind of other harbor that have the right to be used for a temp sensor? Head or block, doesn"t matter.

I"m currently using the initial 67 thermostat housing and also it doesn"t have a sensor port or room come drill and tap one. The donor 85 i supplied for the motor and also trans didn"t have a point out in the real estate either. Execute the EFI motors?The 85 water pump I"m using has actually a plugged harbor on the driver side at the optimal that could be used, yet that"s walking to it is in on the inlet to the motor as opposed come the outlet from the motor. Ns can always use a tee in the heater line from the thermostat, however I want to stay away from doing that that method because that looks. I already need come tee the lines and run water come the bottom of mine intake manifold, and that"s additionally an eyesore come me, but I will try to save that as clean looking and also hidden together I can. Ns may be able to hide the sensor under the manifold in the water key though. I"m wanting to include a move for electrical fans and also retain my working manufacturing facility gauge.

What is staying clear of your usage of the stock location for the temp sensor? One probably could use the block drainpipe location because that the temp sensor. It"s lower in the block and just over the former of the starter.

:hmmm: If the temp sensor has one wire only,you will certainly run right into a grounding difficulty as the sensor (one cable type)grounds with through sensor body.Good luck.Have fun.Be safe.Leo

I want to maintain the usage of my share gauge. It"s sender offers the port above the starter, right below the manifolds. Is there one more port the you"re talking about?I desire to include a switch and the two cannot piggyback the very same sending unit. One is a switch and also the share gauge sending out unit is a thermistor. Also if both supplied a thermistor layout sending unit, two gauges, computers, etc. Cannot share the signal.The stock sender is a one cable unit and is grounded through the block. I"m including a switch the is 2 wire and also simply shorts the 2 wires with each other at 190° to turn on and also off a relay for my fans.
