Cylinder head temp gauge

Anyone running one or two. If so, what cylinder.

The easiest way is a ring around the spark plug base: https://www.google.com/search?q=cylinder+temperature+sensor&client=safari&rls=en&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjCg5qInJ_aAhULoFMKHb2mDtYQ_AUICigB&biw=1440&bih=735

I ran one on cylinder 6. My reasoning: in the back of the engine furthest from the fan, and next to the oil cooler. Its also been my observation that #6 in often the one that shows detonation damage (albeit my sample size is far to small to be statistically significant). Used a ring terminal under the spark plug to connect with thermocouple wire.

I was going to go with one on #3 and one on #6 using a Westach dual cht gauge. Did you run the sensor wire up the spark plug wire and through the valve cover plug?

Yes. The thermocouple wire comes up out of the spark plug hole in the valve cover. Did not interfere with the spark plug wire/cap.

I had a VDO one too. Thermocouple wire sender was on #5. Your reasons for putting it on #6 sound good.
