Default 66 396 temperature gauge

How do you install a gauge if there Isn't a place on a 66 bb 396 to put it? Help. Spent three days looking for a port that didn't exist

Should be a port right above the oil filter. Duh, I can`t read.

Since 66's didn't have the holes drilled in the heads, the temperature gauge sending unit was in the intake manifold.

Sounds like someone installed a later model intake.

Like Dean said, the sending unit location was in the intake manifold, on the driver's side near the thermostat housing.

That's exactly where I put it on mine. The idiot light was useless.
