Where best to tap water temp on a 350 Chevy | The

20190120· The heads will heat up much faster, and will also be a hotter temp all the time. I measured both locations on my 327, and before my 170 degree T stat opened the head 1/3 location was already at around 190200 degrees. Once the stat opens it drops, but still read 1015 degrees higher than the intake manifold location.

Where is the temperature sending unit on a 350 Chevy?

20200428· THAT IS THE NORMAL OPERATING TEMP. Keeping this in view, where is the oil sending unit on a 350 Chevy engine? Right behind and a little right of the dist, and right above the oil filter. The preferred location is behind the dist, because that place is after the cam bearings and will give a true reading after the oil has passed through the engine.

Between these two phenoms... often temperature differences can be seen on the gauge due to these known issues.

Given you live in AZ, you may consider a 180*, but 200212* operating temperature is pretty good. You don''t know what you''ve got til it''s gone.

20190730· Re: outside temp sensor location. Why tuck it up there where the radiator and condenser temp can affect the reading?
