Relocating the temp sending unit
I got the clifford valve cover on the other day and in the process the temp sending unit wouldn't go on. So I had to grind a little off of the valve cover to get a piece of galvinized pipe to screw into the head and I screwed the sending unit on top of that. The only problem is that now the temp reads 120 at the most. The piece of pipe is probably 3 inches long and I'm guessing that the water isn't circulating up to the sending unit. Is there someplace else I can put the sending unit? If not I'll have to grind more of the valve cover and pray I don't go through. Oh, the reason I used the pipe is that it was smaller than the head of the sending unit, not by much but I didn't want to grind too much off.
