    Most SBC have temp senders in the head, some by the thermostat housing. I think the head is a better location as this is going to be the hottest part anyway. Look for a (3/4"?) pipe plug in the head between exhaust ports. Not sure about the Edelbrock units, but there should be a plug there you can use for the temp. probe. Otherwise, there should be one near the thermostat housing on the intake manifold.
