Since my instrument cluster is not working properly I am wanting to put a separate water temp gauge inside my truck, where do I put the sending unit on my engine block.,
Should be in the side of the driver side head.
Can you hook your old sending unit to your new gauge? If it is via wire, it will be an easy hookup. On my Corvette (chevy block) the old one is near the front of the engine as in the diagram above. The second one due to the same issue you have, is on the passenger side of the engine, in the rear.
