Pyrometer install location

Hey guys. I am not sure where I should install this pre-turbo. I understand the best way is pre-turbo which would be drivers side correct? I took a few pictures underneath of where I think it is supposed to be?? I read that on the manifold..or on the up pipe...


The up pipe pic is where it goes up to the turbo I believe.. It is closed to the interior of the cab??? If I would be standing up on the drivers side facing the engine by the fender and looking in.... the left side is where the intake is...and the right side or closest to cab would be where the up pipe to turbo is... correct?? In other words, the closest part of the exhaust manifold to the cab on the drivers side is where I should install.. and is where the up pipe is..??

Very new to this, could use all the advice possible. Thanks

P.s. Clicking on the pic makes them a little bigger..

those are small pictures but you are supposed to put it in the driversside exhuast manifold at the back corner/90 bend.

Is that the 90 degree bend closest to the cab..and seems like the easiest to get to?? It is the bend that is shown in all the pics...

i may have to agree on this. i was always under the directive of behind all the cylinders b4 the up-pipe.... BUT

i was removing manfolds off my parts motor and the same bolt on both sides was the only one i had to drill out which was the bolt to the cab side of #5 and # 6 cylinders. which is right inbetween the last 2 cylinders. this tells me that that is the hottest sopt since all the others came out just fine. i hope someone else chimes in on this

30yr Diesel CAT mechanic is good . . . on 30yr old CATs.
Honestly, don't think it's a big deal. Not sure why he wanted it between the last two though

i guess someone will just have to run the expiriment and run 3 differnt probes in the same manifold to see which spot gets the hottest. HAHAHAHA

I used to have to do that back when I ran engines on the dyno in the Navy. All the big diesels also had probes at every exhaust port. You would know exactly what a engine was doing in a heartbeat.
