as far as i know there is no reason for a trans temp gauge on a manual trans. could b wrong though.

Not many talk about running a trans temp gauge on a std trans.

If you want it, you would likely need to drill the drain plug and tap with a 1/8 npt tap.
i dont know if this would work for ya but i do know the thing would need to be down low so it was in the oil.

Probably just send that gauge back and get a fuel pressure gauge.

I had one on my 94. The ZF's do run hot, especially in 5th gear when towing. You can modify one of the PTO covers to take the probe (you want the probe immersed in the fluid) as in the link. I had a FabCraft Metalworks billet PTO cover to mount mine in (it had a couple of NPT-threaded holes). Before I sold the truck, I had thought about setting up an external pump and cooler for it (not a cheap endevour BTW ... just a Weldon or Tilton pump is $200-$300, throw in a good stacked plate cooler, braided lines, fittings, temp switch, etc and you get the picture). Cheers!

What temps are you looking at normally? And what is the limit?

thanks for the info guys. i couldnt imagine really needing it, but i came with it so i was going to try to install it.... i could see where the fuel pressure would be more help than tran temp... i do like the link that is a pretty clean set up, i guess i need to decide which way to go now... while im getting all this good info, what about the boost? where are you all installing the hose?? thanks again

I just put a tee in the map sensor hose.
i was worried about it leaking though so i used a small zip tie around each connection on the tee just like a little hose clamp. It works real good!
