doesn't matter, don't let ATF get routinely above 200F, otherwise it and
your transmission's life will be drastically shortened. this is the reason
why everyone screams "GET AN EXTERNAL COOLER!!" for the trans.
I have an autometer electrical gauge with the sender installed in the
pressure test port (700r4/4l60). this will give you a more "weighted" temp
response than putting the sender inline with the fluid out line. it's
matter of preference really, if you want to see it go up and down as you
lock and unlock the convertor, buy 2 3/8 comp to 3/8 NPT adapters and a 3/8
NPT tee ( the gauge will have the 3/8 to 1/8 NPT bushing), assemble the T,
then cut into the upper (I think) fluid line coming out of the tranny and
install the T. if you want to have a more weighted (and IMHO, more useful)
response unscrew the pressure test port plug (driver's side above the shift
linkage, 11MM head, 1/8 NPT thread) and thread in the sender. then it's
simploy a matter of wiring it up. I have my gauge in an A pillar pod along
with a mechanical oil pressure gauge (you wouldn't believe how inaccurate
the factory gauge is).
Does a manual tranny even NEED a tranny cooler on a 4-wheel truck? I
can understand on a rig, but even then there's no pump to pump the
fluid to the cooler.
