Weekend project please help

I got a set of gauges, Pyro,Tranny,Water temp. I have searched high and low on this forum and still very confused! There has to be a good reliable place for the water temp sending unit. I have a 06 F-350 and have heard to put it in the block on driver side bolt. Put it in the heater return, put it in the radiater hose. I have no idea how to go about this and have it as acurate as possable. Has anyone done this to theirs and have pics that would point me in the right direction. Any help would be great. The guages are Autometer Z.

Can't tell you where to put it but I can tell you not out near the radiator. You want it to read from the actual block or one of the water passages in the motor. If the thermostat sticks from some reason you need to know it. I guess you might could put it in line with the heater core but it may also have a flow valve to cut it off in the summer, my Toyota Tacoma does to keep heat out of the cab. I know that isn't much help but maybe it will keep you from reworking it twice.
