buy a coolant filter kit, the filter heads have blank ports that you have to put pipe caps on, you could put the sender there, thats what im doing ince i get the gauge kit for it

That's where i put mine, but the sensor the autometer gauge came with wouldn't ground out through the filter housing. so i had to buy a different sensor with a pigtail that had the two wires instead of just one so i could ground it to the battery. now it works perfectly

I used the drain port on the drivers side of the block. Im used the isspro gauge/sender/adapter. works great and temps are dead on.
