Oil temp guage install

Hey guys I just bought an electrical oil temp guage and was reading through the instructions and couldnt see where the best place would be to install the sender. Just wondering if you guys could point me into the right direction on where the best place would be to install it.

Thanks

Thanks for the help man, is the plug located on the right or left side of the block (if I was sitting in the drivers seat)

No sure what gauge you have,but mine is the 140 to 300. MIne runs at 140 most of the time, in the summer with it 105 to 112 deg out side in traffic it gets to 175deg, but i think that i need a new sender. hope this gives you some kind of a idea.

thanks again, my gauge is the 100-250 temp gauge. Now I just need to figure out if I want to mount it on the steering column or wait to get a couple more gauges and do teh overhead setup

Also I noticed you had a water temp guage and oil pressure and voltmeter, those are some of the other guages I was thinking of getting, how hard were those to hook up as far as where to hook them up and stuff if you dont mind me asking

I have asked a lot of people what the temps should be at and no one knows. I see a lot of big trucks with them. Most of them say they have them just to have. Like said above there should be a plug on the right side of the engine for the sender.
