    Default Best place to drill a Dart BBC head for the temp sensor

    I need to find the best place to drill my dart head for a sensor, I don't want to do damage. I also need to know the best place to put a water pressure sender in a v drive system, Kuhl pump, ect.


    Thanks,
    Dave

    Why a head sensor?????

    I'd just tee a sensor in where the water leaves the block. I it leaves from 2 places, either 2 senors(were you planing on 1 or 2 heads sensors?), or after it tees togerther to go overboard. The pressure sensor can be in the line that leaves as well, The closer to the block the better.

    I prefer mechanical gauges and the Leeds will not accommodate on the outlet side of the plumbing. As far as the pressure gauge goes I was hoping to get it as close to the pump as possible. I have lost an engine before with a bad impeller. I was also considering just putting two of the mooneyes mini temp gauges in the heads. That's why I need a place to drill. Will center of the front of the head give me enough clearance?

    I would pull the heads off so you can find the place with the most clearance

    I'd drill it just down (towards the exhaust) from where the water exit port to the intake manifold is, in the front of the head.

    Have you consider this gauge. Warning light, full sweep, and every bit as accurate as a mechancal gauge?
