The gauge should come with all thats necessary to mount in that port. It's just threaded. and its electrical.


What gauges are you looking at?

Look at glowshift gauges. I got them. Theyn are kinda ricey, but I think the 7 color thing is cool. There cheap too. If you buy the gauge for the ford, and do the correct vehicle and model, they will give you the right fitting

If you buy autometer gauges and are planning on mounting it in the pan make sure you order the weld in bung for the trans pan. Otherwise it's probably gonna leak. Autometer Part number is 2261
