I'm trying to diagnose a temp gauge issue and want to work backwards from the sensor. Can anyone tell me or show me where the sensor is located? I've read several posts of where it is supposed to be, but don't see it anywhere. I have a 1983 with the 258 engine.

It is at the back of the engine, can't remember what side but it is towards the top.
I need to change mine also

Think on block, the driver side rear. Single boot style plug. Purple wire I believe in color..least if I remember correctly for a 5.

This is what my replacement looks like next to a sharpie for size scale. Signal threaded shaft with a single wire attached.
