Thanks turbogus, this is the update on my mech water temp mission... I have moved from therm housing area and decide to try elsewhere , picked up a sun pro gauge and going to the next step .. Here are some pics of driver side motor area, might one of you guys be so kind in pointing out which one of them outlets I can plug the therm probe into? Here are some pics I took of the engine .. I don't know how to label pics but lets just number them for top to bottom 1-7.... My guess is 7 by looking at some other threads on here.. Thank you for caring and showing jeep love to a total strange with the same illness the JEEP'N Curse.. Pic 1 is my failed attempt in the housing, the probe hits the inside of housing, it too long... Still leaked

You could make a small ext. for the sensor and still use the stat housing.

Depending were you lie I would not do #4. IF it gets cold, you would need this switch to heat the manifold up to keep from stumbling.

I like #1 of course. I can't believe with such a short sweep it has such a long bulb.

I would probably go with #6 if it fits. That switch is probably not doing anything anymore.

I would do this if #1 is not an option

I think that I had to use the red arrow in Strenk's post above with the Sun Pro. IIRC, the yellow arrow is too near a cylinder wall. I used the cheapy SunPro gauge as well.

Just bought a sunpro too! I was planning on using the port with the red arrow in the pic above.

I removed that (pic1), installed the temp gauge and ran with it.. After 5 mile test drive gauge went up to about 190 , what do you guys think? Did I put the sensor in an "ok" place?
