Post Where can I install my water temp sending unit?

I have a Chevy 327 with an intake on it from a '68 327, and unfortunately the intake does not have a hole for the water temp sending unit. I also currently have a chrome water neck that also does not have a hole for the sending unit. Is there any place else where I can hook the sending unit into?

I have an aftermarket water pump on it with a plug going into the top, don't know if the sending unit will reach that far. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Don't use the water pump fitting, your heads have a pipe plug fitting on the sides between the center and end exhaust ports, use the sender there.
