Re: AMC 258 coolant temp switch \"HELP!!!!\"...UPDATED
Thanx a lot, you came with the right answer!!!! It took me a moooong time to find it and here is what i get
"The last thing to install on the engine is the coolant temperature sensor. On mine I used a passage meant for a thermal vacuum switch or CTS (This is found on 1983 and newer 258 engines; I had it because my new engine came from an 1983 model year Jeep) on the intake. If you don't have anything like this available, you can use a brass T and put it in a heater hose. The only requirement to be sure to remember is that you must put a ground wire from the T fitting to the block, as the rubber hose is of course ungrounded and this will cause the CTS not to work properly."
It is from <a target="_blank" href=http://www.off-road.com/jeep/reviews/holleyreview.htm>here</a>. Thanks again for your help since i was really felling as i won t be able to install my TBI without paying a lot for some new parts!!! (i don't remember how wrote that JEEP=Just Empty Every Pocket but he is damn right!!!)
