At some point, probably around April, 1950, Ford was thinking of adding a temperature sensor. The cylinder head was cast with an additional boss on the LH front top side where it would to plug into a drilled and tapped port. Years ago my good friend Roger, a retired Ford tractor mechanic, worked on a 1950 8N with a gauge installed -see pictures below. I am unsure, but don't believe they were never put into full production.
