Looking for a Fitting coming out of intake manifold for heater hose

I've tried the searches, blah blah blah, can't find it.

This is the Tee fitting that I've seen on some of your motors that is 1/2" NPT into the intake manifold (I have the RPM Performer). It acts as 90* that threads into the manifold, then allows you to thread your water temp sensor on the top, while also allowing you to attach your supply heater hose to the side barb. It's brass and I can't find it on the forum anymore.

Can some one help me locate it?
Thanks,
Dave

No problem Mark, I have lots of your parts on my car and they all work great.

DadofThree, if you plan on using the sensor position of the tee for your EFI ECT sensor while running a heater you might want to look at a bypass heater control valve. I originally used that spot for a engine fan control sensor but found the sensor didn't get enough coolant flow to operate correctly when the heater wasn't on. The problem could have been solved by installing a bypass control valve. This would be the best solution if using this port for an EFI sensor. I got a different water neck with a sensor port and used this for my fan sensor switch. This solution won't work for an EFI sensor because there's no coolant flow until the thermostat opens. Here is a picture of an example of a bypass controller available at Autozone.

Jeff Kleiner provided the info on the water neck and bypass controller in a previous thread.

Can't locate the thread where this was discussed. I can't find any threads prior to April 2016 and I know it was before that.

Sorry

Here is a photo of the Breeze fitting on my 347 ... with a Victor Jr intake.



I use the top fitting for the EFI ECU temperature and the other for the heater inlet.

The coolant temperature sensor is on the DS of the intake manifold.

I agree that the sensor needs to be in flowing coolant. If not, they will likely read low.

The thermostat housing is a good place. Carlwms' picture has a plug there. (why not the sensor?)

Some thermostat housings don't actually have a hole there, but have a bung that can be drilled and tapped.

The thermostat housing port works great for a fan control switch but will not be accurate during warm up for an EFI sensor. There is no coolant flow until the thermostat opens. The ECM will get a cold engine reading and run the engine on a rich mixture until the thermostat opens. Not ideal.
