does anyone know how to install a water temp gauge on a late model 4.6 The main problem I'm having is where to put the sender. I can see where the sender for the idiot light goes on the top front of the intake. Is there a way for me to install the temp gauge and keep the idiot light functional?

There is a brass plug on the drivers side, under the block. Thats where you put the sending unit. Make sure you drain all the coolant before you remove the plug though. The problem with putting it in the one on the intake is that the sender isn't all the way submerged in the coolant so you don't a good reading. Hope this helps.
Mike.

I tried to put one in on the block but the probe was too long. You need some sort of fitting to space it a little. Anyone know the specs on the "spacer"
