Re: trany temp gauge help

There is a port in the trany that will work but I cant remember wich one [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] sorry In the cooler line will work if you get a T fitting or you could tap your pan. Put it in the hot side of the cooler as close to the trany as possible.

For water I would persoanlly go into the head. there is a plug in the middle by the exhaust ports. The intake is also a possible spot but it will read a tad lower.

Oil pressure is back by the distributor. There shoulfd be a pipe plug in the block facing up, an idiot light sender is probably in there already.

Re: trany temp gauge help

Might try a search......I cant remember what plug to use in a th350? Its one of the test ports in the side of the case.

Teeing into the cooler line or tapping the pan is another idea. Plus if you tap the pan you can drain your fluid and change the filter and install a drain plug. The pan will read lower though.

It is a th350 right? I cant remember? or is it a 700r4?

Re: trany temp gauge help

I dont believe any manual will tell you were to put it. Its not really a stock type deal. I believe there is a test port(that you can hook up a guage to see and set the line pressure with) on the side that can be used. Just make sure you dont block off a passage by screwing a sender all the way through into it.
