    Where does this go? I know its somewhere near the distributor. This sensor lost its label in the process of my engine swap. It seems to be a water temp sending unit but I can't find a place to stick it. Is there a spot for this behind the engine somewhere?

    It looks like the overdrive sensor on the 700R4. Mine leaked like crazy tell I replaced it. Just a guess....Dan

    You're talking about the one on the back corner of the intake right. I have that sending unit in place already. I just can't figure this one out.

    This on has a bigger thread size than the one on the intake, so I know it doesn't go there. I just ordered a GM shop manual today /forums/images/icons/smile.gif If I had it in front of me I wouldn't be bothering you guys with this.

    I was guessing that! But where exactly. I looked all around the tranny but with my exhaust pipes in the way I couln't really see. Front, Back, Left, Right? Maybe this would explain why my OD never worked.

    I just went outside to check too!! LOL you didn't have to. But you are right on. I looked at my old tranny (I swapped in a new engine and tranny) and it was missing right where you said. This whole time I had the truck (year and a half) I never had OD. Just thought the tranny was going bad since it was a 700r4. I guess this sensor was just hanging around under the truck. Thanks Dan, you came through!!

    <font color=orange>55Willy</font color=orange>, you had a good guess, the two sensors are almost identical.
    <font color=orange>DuneRunner</font color=orange>, thanks for the offer, I should've ordered that shop manual a long time ago. Lesson for the day: Don't do engine swaps without a shop manual, Haynes and Chilton's don't cut it.

    Finally I can fire up the new engine tonight *fingers crossed*

    Thanks again for all your help guys!
