Whilst working on my project I find I have a good Minor 948 cylinder head which been fitted with bigger inlets, hardened seats some combustion chamber reshaping etc ( can not remember where it came from) but the problem is it does not have the hole for a temperature sensor for a gauge.
I have seen before water inlet manifolds that sits on the head with this hole and thread in the side.
Anyone know where to by one???

How about a thermostat housing with the sensor casting?

I realise this one might be the wrong angle but you get the idea:
