Trans temp gauge.

Hey im getting my gauges hooked up today and my mechanic is saying he cant hook up my tranny temp prob because i have a stick oil pan, this is BS isnt it? I believe 90% of ppl that have gauges have stock oil pans, is he right?

If you are running analog gauges, there should be a test port on the left side of the trans that the sensor can go in. I know there is one on the 7.3l anyway.

Most 6.0l guys run digital gauges which read off of the OBDII.

The FP sender goes on the fuel bowl test port it is kinda hard to access because of the upper radiator hose. I used a 90 to keep the sender away from the hose, strictly diesel sells a relocation kit for the sender that works really well.

I just took the radiator hose out to put it in at the hole is too small, you think advanced sells a fitting for that?

The adapter fitting for the FP is M12x1.5 male (o-ring boss) to 1/8npt female. Not sure if the "box store" auto parts carry it. Most hydraulic shops carry the fitting.
