OK so the sensor does not need to make contact with the water that is flowing through water jacket right, originally I thought that the water needed to flow over the sensor. So it looks like the sensor is picking the temp of the engine block or head not the actual water temp. I really do not want to remove a head bolt and I have seen a "blind threaded hole" near a head bolt, but as you said I would need to make sure the sensor does not bottom out and make contact with the metal casting, also what is the temp that the motor should be running at
