    after swapping in my heads i discovered that my old temp sending unit in the heads has threads that are too large for the vortecs. the new sending unit has 3/8" threads. What temp senders are you guys using and how much did they cost you were you got them?

    Just go to your parts store and tell them you got the smaller temp guage they should be able to just go back there in there little bin and pull one.
    Chevy has two sizes so it shouldnt be hard to find.
    I think I payed $10-$12 not sure.
    Good luck
