Assuming that we're dealing with a Ford FE engine, sounds like the original hardware or manifold has been changed as the Temp sensor is located in the Intake Manifold, not the bypass hose, on OEM Ford FE's.

You may have to pursue changing the manifold outlet nipple to a 5/8" to match the water pumps nipple. Or if another fitting was added to accept the temp sensor, that may have to be removed and the sensor moved back to the original location.

Knowing how little space there is between the two nipples, I can't imagine what you have. If it's an aftermarket intake, maybe different nipple sizes are available from suppliers such as Summit Racing.

How were the two connected beforehand?

The water pump I have came with a piece of rubber on the nipple to use as a spacer. I was able to get my hose over that but it wasn't easy. Seems to be ok though. Try different pieces of hose to see if you can find one to fill the gap. I'm pretty sure the outlet on my '59 352 intake isn't larger than 3/4 though. My temp sensor is in the outlet also. I think they changed it in '60.

If anyone here has a 49/59 FORD MPC, the Basic PN on a WP bypass hose is 8597. There may be a PN for this unique installation or a service recommendation.

The 58 & most of the 59's used the temp sender in the bypass port. There is a Part # for the spacer, but if your nipple on the pump will take a 3/4" hose, install a 5/8 over the sender pipe and a 3/4 over the 5/8 and connect it to the 3/4 nipple on the pump. Not all pumps use the 3/4 nipple, but if it does, this method will work.

Thanks guys for adding to and correcting my previous post, wasn't aware that the sending unit location differed on the early 352 engines. Always welcome new information about these old cars.
