I have a couple of questions. I have a 68 camaro with the temp sensor in
the water neck . To get the electrical lead to the sensor I had to splice
in a length of wire and soldered both ends. The temp gauge reads
high--note that the sender is the right one for the gauge. I wonder two
1. Could soldering affect the line resistance and the gauge reading?
2. Is the water neck location significantly hotter than the original block
location (which I can't use because the appropriate sender is 1/2 inch and
in the newer motor the sender is tapped for a 3/8 inch sender).
Thanks for your thoughts.
