Coolant Temp Sensor Location: Head or Intake?
Since there are some cooling questions currently, I'll add another; I am in the process of switching my incorrect Quadra-Jet Intake out for a Dual-Plane Air Gap intake to match up with my Holley 650, and since I'm in a good place for placing my Temp sensor in the best place, where is it? initially, I had it in the left rear intake. Then, when I wasn't getting much activity on my temp gauge, when I upgraded to the Roller Cam, I went ahead and moved the sensor to the forward left-hand port in the intake, right next to the T-Stat. My engine is a 1966 396 with 3904390 oval port heads. I keep noticing people using the forward-Left port in the head. Can you guys offer feedback on any advantages/dis-advantages to these different locations?
