temp sender location


My '55 331" motor from a New Yorker is the subject.
I have installed a 6-71 blower manifold, a HH crossover assembly and an aluminum BBC water pump.

What is not obvious is where do I put a coolant temp sender.
Will I need to build a "loop" between the heater ports in the water pump to create a port for the sender?

Never:
On the Hot Heads intakes, there is a 1/2" NPT threaded boss between the first and second port on each side that go to water. A cleaner way is to use the Hot Heads water blocks #21603. Most folks use the passenger side for the heater hose, (concealed) and the drivers side for the temp sender, again concealed.
I hope this helps,
Bob
