On my 89 5.0, the coolant temp sending unit for the gauge is near intake runner # 5. There is also a coolant temp sending unit in the metal heater line that is probably for the computer.

my temp gauge is pinned to the floor and does move when grounded. Not sure if its temp or overflow. I read on the forums that it may be the temperature sending unit so thats what i picked up from ford

OK. The low coolant sensor is just for the idiot light. Not sure which sensor is for the gauge.

ECT is a sensor for the computer, it goes in the heater pipe bolted front to back on the passenger side of the intake. The Coolant Temp SENDER for the gauge is the single wire unit that 's pictured above, which threads into the intake itself.
