912 coolant temp monitoring was created by Olsonlarry9
I've got the 912 ULS heads that are configured for CHT probes that are the dry type (prior to the wet CHT head config). I'm going to monitor CHT on cylinders 2 & 3. How critical is it to also monitor coolant temp on a gauge in the cockpit? Won't coolant temp basically follow CHT? If I do monitor coolant temp where is the best place to put a sender?

They're close enough as thousands of 912 engines have bared out. You'll be just fine.

This is what I used with VDO sensor for coolant temperature. I install it right after expansion tank and before thermobob T-stat.
