You can also T off the output tranny line and install the sensor as close as possible to the trans. Just be aware the fluid will be 5-10* hotter in the trans than what the gauge is reading from this location.
The pan is the best location IMO, but if you don't want to drill/punch and tap a hole in the pan, the output line is an acceptable alternative that will still let you know what is going on inside the tranny.
the temp. is good to know.. i found out when in 4x4 low, and am giving it some high rpm s .. it goes up very quick.. and takes a while to cool down...the fluid does not go through the radiator.. am going to put the larger pan and see if it realy helps.... quinn
Well if you guy's like to go 4x'ing you should put a trans guage in because of several reasons, low range adds heat, getting stuck in the mud, sand, snow adds heat and if you go at it long enough you will melt your trans, towing adds heat also not nearly as bad as the other 4 though
