    Default head temp gauges

    Have a set of big brodies brodix heads. I want to drill them for water temp gauges. Anyone have experience or tips doing this. Was told it was a no-no but don't believe that.

    Any suggestions/tips? Can it be done?

    Thanks in advance

    You can drill the face of the head, approx an inch up or so from the deck surface. Closer to the exhaust flange. The factory iron heads usually have a big pipe plug there.
    A lot of Big Chief heads pull water out the engine in roughly the same area instead of going thru the intake.
    I remember doing the same to a engine a while back- for temp sender
