You'll only have the 2 in the lower thermostat housing - the one on the back of the head only came in with the AU's and onward AFAIK.

This is assuming your running an E series haed.


After looking arouns I think you are correct ... the reason being the E-series heads got hot at the rear (found out a long time after R&D had been completed and many kays were driven) ... causing the head gasket to fail and heads to warp ... hence the relocation of the sensor to the rear of the head instead of the thermostat housing.

I had found under heavy load on warmer days the back of the head on my Au was getting warm and sending my temp gauge through the roof ... but the rest of the system was running at the correct temp (using an infrared thermometer).
