which temp sensor location?

i was replacing my t-stat the other day and noticed a second (electric) temp sensor before the t-stat housing neck on the top of the block. the PO had the hole in the neck plugged and a crazy collection of pipe fittings attached to a mechanical temp sensor in a box. should i hook up the mechanical temp sensor at the neck and plug the hole where the electric sensor is, or vice a versa? i have no plan to keep the electric sensor, but i would like to know the best place for my mechanical temp sensor.

the Jeep is an 82 CJ7 with a 302 from a 72 CJ5.

I assumed you meant "304". I put mine where the CTO used to be. Here's a nice picture of the manifold that labels everything. Notice how the EGR CTO port has a mechanical water located there.

yeah. 304. i was looking at the 302 that sits in front of my jeep when i typed that.

nice pic, but for some reason it looks a little different than mine. maybe its all those silly vac hoses.

i have sensors for both spots. one at the t-stat housing (spark CTO port) and one at the water temp. sensor port




which spot is better?

its an electrical connection on what looks like a stud in the pic. just one of those wires with a 90˚ rubber boot.
