400 sbc temp sensor location

temp gage sending unit location | Team Camaro Tech

· What I did find with the temp sensor in the head was, a hot engine turned off, then ignition turned on would read much higher due to latent heat in the head transfering to the water with no circulation. Once the engine was restarted, the temp corrected very quickly. Other locations also had the same effect to a lesser degree, except for temps in the top of the radiator.

Temp gauge sender best location? | The

· The thermostat location is the last point coolant reaches before heading for the radiator and therefore represents the average temp if you will of all the hot and cold spots in the engine. I'd rather know that number for everyday driving. If you are into something like roundtrack competition or other prolonged duration power runs it might help to know where your hot spots are but I am not a racer. My …

SBC Temp sender location for aftermarket Gauge | Hot Rod Forum

· I have run temp sensors in all 3 locations at different times. To do what you are wanting to do placing it in the intake next to the thermostat will be fine. That will give you the reading of the water that is closet to the thermostat. Keep a close eye on the guage and you should be able to tell when the thermostat opens. There will be some variation in the readings between all 3 locations but it shouldn't be that great. What you will notice is the temp …

· The thermostat housing is a bad location for the temp gauge sender. If the thermostat fails or if there is an air bubble, the gauge won't tell you that you are destroying your engine from overheating because it is downstream from the thermostat. Putting emission controls sensor on the thermostat housing is one thing, but putting something that is supposed to tell you that you are killing your engine …

SBC engine temperature...what is too hot? | The

· SBC engine temperature...what is too hot? Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Bluesfella, ... My car is a '55 and the radiator is in the 6 cyl position. Which is fine, but there's no room for a pusher fan. (In a '56 or '57, there is plenty of room!) My electric fan (I think it's 16") is set up as a puller...supposedly more efficient that way anyway. I'm thinking about ...

SBC 350 Operating Temperature | Team Chevelle

· I have a vortec headed 400 that use to run hot about any time. I then learned that it liked a fair amount of initial timing. I went from 12* to 18 * and it help a lot. Then I installed wideband O2 sensor and found out the edelbrock 750 was lean about every where. I richened it up a bit and the truck runs on the thermostat, 180* most days. With AC on and high ambient outside temps it will run ...

· The electric puller fan is inside that shroud, mounted directly to the face of the radiator, with some padding to prevent metal-on-metal contact. It lines up approximately where the A/C condenser is on the front of the radiator. It's a new Autometer electric temp gauge, with the sensor in the driver's side head.

Best location for temp sending unit??? | Chevy Nova Forum

Oil Pressure sender location on SBC??? | The

· Nothing quite like being 400 miles from home in your new car and seeing the oil pressure drop to zero. Anyhow, the cure was similar to Sammy's. I had little brother have the oil field supply shop make up a 10-12" high pressure hose, pulled the extension bar, mounted the hose in it's place and mounted the new - #3 - sender on the end of that and Adel clamped it to the engine lift bracket.
