    Coolant Temp sensor , no partnr findable

    Good evening all Caddy lovers!

    Dont know for sure ,if this is the right forum to post this engine related question ?
    I recently bought a Caddy DeVille 1980 Strecht Limo vehicle,
    On the front of the 368 6.0L Carb. engine is de the coolant temp sensor/coolant switch,
    with 3 wires (brown,green,blue), 1 goes to the dash i assume for the Engine Temp Light and 2 to some kind of chip/ecu
    for hot/cold running regoc.
    The sensor wires are hard wired to the sensor, so the new sensor does have to have the 3 wires and a pigtail connector on it.
    But the people here in The Netherlands cannot find the right partnr for it, i so do i.
    It and the manuals only come up with a 1 wire/connector coolant sensor for 1980 year. But it does def. 3 wires.
    Anyone got a clue and a partnr. ?

    Wouldn't an 81 basically be the same except for the 8-6-4?
