Trans temp sensor

I have a 97 f250. We currently put in a2001 f250 manual transmission. Now that we did that all my gauges on the gauge pod don't work. The sensor is not in the transmission because I need a new one for the manual tranny. Does anyone know if I can just get a sensor and a local parts store? And also where do the sensors go? Do you think this would make my gauge pod gauges work again?

Thanks

What types and brand gauges do you have in the pod? Any sending unit will need to match up with the gauge to read correctly. For a manual tranny, the sending unit would normally go in one of the PTO covers (you would need to modify it to fit or see if you can find a billet PTO cover ... I had one from FabCraft Metalworks). I don't know if the 2001 tranny would have some other provision for one. Cheers!

The gauges are by glow shift. I have the trans temp, exhaust temp and boost. But they don't work now since we changed trannys. Only thing different is the trans temp is not hooked up. They worked fine before

Hmm, you'd expect them to work independently of one another. But you might want to contact GlowShift about it. Another thing to try - disconnect all the wires from the back of the tranny temp gauge head, and see if that makes the other two gauges come back to life, at least for the time being.

What should the boost be at normal driving? I think my gauge is off. It's about 10 until I punch it then it jumps up close to 30. The sensor is also not sealed correctly it is loose.

Stock, you would see about 4 psi just cruising flat and level and about 16-18 under heavy load. Cheers!

I have a 01 7.3 turbo in it and I have straight pipe, intake, and stage 2 injectors. So you think the 9 psi is normal. When on the gas hard it will hit about 25 ish or more.

I've done a lot of reading on the trans temp gauge with the manual and they say you don't need it. What would be a good other gauge to have in there since I will have an open spot on the pilar. Would fuel pressure be good?
