The coolant sensor on the 5.7L is located under the air conditioning compressor, installed on a water jacket at the front of the engine.

There's a document attached with some pics and directions for removing it.

I upgraded my radiator and the new wiring harness says to connect it there.
I assume I should just splice in the (-) fan switch control there. That's what the instructions say. I also assume that's what tells the fans when to kick on?

Thanks

I also have a wire that is for the AC Clutch.... any idea of what that is and what it should connect to?

BTW: I have this engine in my street rod, that's why all the guess work.
