Driven diesel makes an adapter that brings the sensor to the side of the engine compartment where its free of vibration and away from the rad hose

Not to bum you out about spending $50 or if you are planning on buying this "adapter" but I just spent $1.41 and made it work without it touching anything. I bought a 1/8th pipe ABP street elbow.
Here are some pictures.

Here is what it looks like without the elbow.


Here is the $1.41 elbow.


Here are the pictures of it installed.

Yep, and what is all this worry about vibration. My motor is a smooth as can be. Running the sensor right off the test port is no problem at all.

Whoever makes your gauge will have the sender to match.
