Curious... Where should the water temp sender be placed.... on the screw in outlet of the water pump, in the block at the screw in right below where the thermostat is, etc? What will give the truest reading? Appreciate your input.. My email is dclark@pssd.com

In the block just below the thermostat. The water flow past a sensor in the water pump can cavitate, not giving a true reading. And in the water can away from the engine, not only do you not get a true reading but if the water level drops a qt or two, you'll read 160 degrees- which is the air temperature above the getting-hotter-by-the-minute water. BTW, the block mount is where Ford placed the sender in millions of 351C passenger cars.

Excellant.... Appreciate the insight... I need only now find a plug for the screw in outlet on the water pump...
