Best place for the above for a 1990 Scala DX injection?

I'm confused - there isn't a temp sender on the thermostat housing.

If it's the small one - with the slide on spade connector then it's 049919501 (check on the sender though as it might have a B on the end). Fairly cheap from everywhere - Heritage, B&B on ebay or classic-vw
