BBC Location of Temperature Sensor

Gentlemen,

I have checked a Hayes manual, a Chilton Manual and done online searches. The only thing I haven't done is crawled around on the ground under the vehicle trying to find it yet....

Need to know where the location of the temperature sensor is. My temp guage is not working and I bought one of those cheapy sunpro guages to keep an eye on the motor temps.

any help would be appreciated.

thanks.

Usually, its in the drivers side head, directly below the A/C compressor. Could possibly be in the pass side head near the rear inbetween the last 2 plugs.

Jmark,

it was right where you said it'd be. Just a little obstructed from the Exhaust A.I.R. injection crap...I ended up having to bend it out of the way to get the sensor out...just need to get some teflon tape to put the new one in.

thanks again boss.

DON'T use any tape on the threads! You will not get a good ground as the tape will insulate between the sending unit and the engine. Tapered pipe threads should seal fine as that is how they are designed. If you must use something on the threads to help seal; then use a small amount of RTV at the upper end of the threads leaving the lower portion of the threads bare to make good continuity to the engine.

instructions say to use teflon tape. it's a mechanical guage. Regardless of how much tape I put on the fittings...the actual sensor should be sticking into the water passage in the head and all should be good.
