You can debate location of the sender, but the pan is the easiest for my application. Couple of photos attached:
That's just what I was talking about, switching senders on a single gauge. I think the pan works fine as a location for the sender. Thanks for posting how well that works for you. I know lots of guys who run an extruded cooler like yours, but very few that have a sender/gauge to monitor how it's really working.
