Dipricol Guage help

I bought my truck and it cam e with the gauges on the pillar. They are Dipricol Gauges. There is Boost,EGT and Tranny. The boost appears to be working great. The Tranny maxes out at the top (Gauge on dash runs normal) and the Pyro does not appear to be hooked up. I check under the truck and there is no EGT Probe in the manifold and the tranny sensor is there. The wire to the the tranny looks a bit tired. Doeas anyone have a good outlet for Dipricol probes or will any probes work. My Google search does not yield many results. These guages were installed in Late '02 or early '03. Thanks

are you saying that some could have installed the tranny temp probe into the exhaust manifold?!

lol k just clearing that up im sure its happened

but my dipricol gauges didnt come with much for instructions, just basic how to hook up a mechanical gauge vs an electrical. if i were you i would pull your tranny probe out and have a visual look, and i would replace the probe for the egt;s. you pretty much have to trace the installers steps to see what he has done.

The trans gauge may be having issues because of a bad ground....check that first. The Diprocal gauges use a one wire sender and are "case" grounded. Often with the teflon tape, etc. it won't get a good ground. When there is no ground the gauge will go full hot. BRB with a link to show how to fix it.

This should work.....I figure this is easier than explaining it.
