Water outlet problem

So I cracked my old water outlet replacing the thermostat recently. I was given the stock 87 outlet and then attempted to put it on, but if I did it would hit the serpentine belt and burn a hole through it. :C

As seen here (Pardon the mess the engine needs a steam clean)


So they matched this the old one i took off the engine


With this one that is new the belongs to of all things a Grand Cherokee from 92. but there is a problem with that extra threaded hole.


So do I just go buy a bolt and cut it down, slap some white piping lock that you use in home faucets and stuff and call it good? or is there a exact replacement part?

thats a pipe thread. you can eather go and get the right size pipe plug or but the sensor for 92 grand cherokee. or put in your own temp gauge.
no matter which way you do it use teflon tape.

Ok a pipe plug sounds good I see no reason to move my temp gauge as it still works.

Cheers mate.
