According to my 81 FSM, the coolant temp sensor is located just to the left of the coolant temp switch, which is just to the left of the base of the distributor. Follow the wires from the distributor cap, and you will find it. It is rights above the outlet for the water pump.

I think I found it, but hell no way in hell to get it out....I did notice the wires were frayed a bit and taped them up some....I hope that this is the problem, I am tired of the the disco light show on my dash!!:thumbsup:
