Trans gauge question? High pressure port.

I installed my new 3 pillar gauge kit this week. I installed the trans sensor in the high pressure port where the instructions said to. What temp am I reading is this the fluid temp coming out of the pan or the hottest the fluid gets? I was running around town yesterday and it was about 80deg out I had about 800lbs in the bed rocks and wood chips. My temps where about 150deg. Just kind of wondering whats normal?

Thanks

Mine usually reads about 140-160* on any given day. Loaded a little higher than that (really to high i need a tranny cooler!)

I can't get my tranny gauge to register. My 4R100 has a 22 qt pan under it and just had a fresh rebuild 2 weeks ago. My 35 yeafr mech. said all i hooked up and looks good for the gauge but has nevver sen such a large pan before. He thought maybe I should try pulling a heavy load and maybe it would warm up enough to show some activity. I pulled my 24 foot gooseneck stock trailer 35 miles on way to get 4H pigs for the kids this morning. I worked it pretty hard up the hills but never got the needle to move off of the peg. It starts a t 140 degrees. Do you think with the added fluid capacity it's not getting warm enough to reach the minimum on the gauge? Beats the h e double hockey sticks out of me!!! what do you guys think?

It was about 58 this morning. I hauled a 6 ton load of cattle nutrition tubs this afternoon home on a bumper trailer around 65 miles one way, worked the pi$$ out of it and still nothing. It was around 72 today. Mech said the tranny cooler was OK. Didn't ask what kind it was and haven't payed attention. It's on a 2000 f350, dual wheeled, ex-cab, 4x4, 4R100, 211,000 miles.

I'm not trying to step on toes, I thought maybe with the dscussion the original guy would shed some light on the issue and expand. We answered his question and was hoping for some information from him since he just put his gauges in. I bought my truck with mine already in it. Just striking up conversation. Sorry...

normal temps are 80 degrees over ambient temp... so if its 50 outside normal temps would be 130 degrees...
