thought about what I said

on the t-stat drill & tap
I dont like this idea as the round shape will be hard to prevent leaks and the switch make stick in far enough to touch the t-stat (but this would be the ideal location)

and the probe idea on the radiator is a bad idea as the flow of air will give a false reading of water temp

you need to get the new gauge switch close to the water flow before it goes to the radiator, this will give you the hottest water temp

I will take a look around the truck this weekend and see where is easiest. If necessary I will get the 15 dollar adapter that goes in a radiator hose.

"You're in luck.
The 4.9 has (2) water temp sensing ports.
The first is on the T-Stat housing. It's the one for the ECT sensor that the computer uses. That one you do not want to mess with. Not ever.

The other is low in the block in the on the RH side in the water jacket. That's the port the gauge sender uses. It's a pipe thread, IIRC 3/8" NPT (about 11/16" outside thread diameter); I may be in error on that size though. It may be smaller. You can either pull and discard the sender and screw your aftermarket sender in its place or you can screw a schedule 40 black iron nipple and tee into the port, install the factory sender in one leg of the tee and your sender in the other. DO NOT use brass fittings. They have been known to break in this application."

Score. I'm assuming this means I will lose all the coolant. Good time for a flush eh?
