Oil temp. sensor location?

I'm in the process of adding an oil temp. gauge and I'm wanting to know where everyone is mounting the sensor who has one. I'm assuming somewhere on the HPOP reservoir. I appreciate any input anyone has to offer.

Thanks,
Drake

The factory oil temp sender is in the HPOP reservoir. You can mount it there, or you can mount it in the oil filter housing if those plugs are available.

There is a plug normally where I have this hose mounted. That is an oil pressure port.

Is the temp. reading going to be the same if I placed the sensor in the HPOP reservoir vs. the oil filter housing? Maybe I should ask if one location better than the other for any reason?

They will be a little different. It really doesn't matter that much as long as you compare similar temperatures. The factory chose the HPOP reservoir, I use their sensor along with my Aeroforce Scan Gauge to read the temps. I try to keep my oil temp under 200*. The oil temp will be pretty consistent since the coolant is what is used to cool it.

I also take my oil pressure off of the HPOP reservoir. This allows me to see if the HPOP is ever starving for oil. My pressures may be lower than off of the block, but it doesn't matter since I know it could be lower there.

Thanks for your input everyone! I decided to use the oil filter base location for my sensor.
