where to mount temp sender

Ok looking for ideas- maybe a pic or 2
i'm running a rpm(performer) manifold on my sbc and my temp sender is in the front drivers side of the manifold. well i wanna add an electric fan should i "T" off the one hole and run both sensors from the same outlet or does someone else have a different idea. Heads are aftermarket alum and no provisions for a sensor. thanks

Paul, does your intake have 2 ports for temp senders? Otherwise you can use the heads also. There are ports there.

Re: where to mount temp sender

Temperature senders should not be "T'd" from the same port, the sensor will never read the correct coolant temp.
The alum heads should have an unmachined boss in the same location as the OE heads.
Either you drill and tap for the sensor or have a machine shop do it.
You can get a thermostat housing with a plug in it and use it for the fan thermostat.

Count on that o-ring to leak. Sand the chrome on the mating surface and use sealant. I've even left the o-ring and used sealant. No leaks either way.

Re: where to mount temp sender

It doesn't make any difference.


Think how fast that coolant is moving through the motor.
