water temp gauge hookup

There has always been an autometer water temp gauge in my mustang but it has never worked. Neither has the one in the original gauge cluster. Id like to get the autometer hooked up. if i remember correctly it gets hooked up somewhere on the intake? but where and what size and type of tubing do i use? thanks guys

IIRC its a 3/8 NPT but I'm not 100% on that. Its on the front left of the lower intake manifold. To keep the stock gauge working, you can get a filler neck with a stock water temp sensor bung and lengthen the OEM wire to run it there.

Just because I give you advice, doesn't mean I know more than you. Its just means I've done more stupid ****.
