I need a temperature sensor. The stock one goes into the head, and when the heads were 'fixed/rebuilt', I no longer have that hole. What's the best thing to do? I thought about trying to redrill the hole and thread to take a stock sensor, don't know if the old one is any good, I suspect it's not reliable. Perhaps one of those that goes under the spark plug. I think that would require buying a sensor and gauge to match? If this is a big risk I'll have to take it in to a shop 100+ mile away? Maybe an oil dip stick temperature sensor like the old V-dubs?
