Default Can I use a "T"

So I have too few water sensor outlets on my manifold.
Thermostat housing is not an option.
Can I use one port with a "T" fitting to house both the temperature sensor and the fan sensor.
Thanks

Without flow across the sensors they wont read accurate, with a T the water deadheads so probably be cooler than actual temp.Have you checked for ports in the head?

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

You can drill and tap the water pump for the sensor location
