Sounds like a problem with your choke. It may just need to be cleaned (linkages and all). If the choke doesn't close after reaching operating temperature, the engine will rev high. This indicates a choke stuck in the open position. Also, you may need to look for a vacuum leak if cleaning it doesn't fix it. On a 1981 GM product, I'd expect the vacuum hoses to be stiff and cracking.

SOURCE: i search the temperature sensor
The temp sensor for the gauge is in the drivers side head between the #1 and #3 spark plugs. The one for the computer (if you have a ccc carb) is in the intake by the thermostat housing.

you could bring it up on tdc on comp stroke and make your own mark on crank pulley and block then at least you know where tdc is and google some 383's that have close to same equip as you and see what degree they are running or just play with it and see how it runs .
