On my Buick V6, the water temp switch is up top on the intake manifold below and in front left of the carburator and behind the thermostat housing at the top front of the engine.  I just pulled my out yesterday to replace it with a gauge sensor.  Same with the oil pressure switch, it's on the left lower front of the block just behind the lower hose connetor.

I can't recall where the temp sensor is on my 225, but I would generally
say that a water temp sensor should be in the engine's internal cooling
loop (the portion that has water cycling through it even when the
thermostat is closed). Typically this is near the thermostat, though
anywhere in the cylinder water jacket should be reasonable,
