Quick Gauge Help

I finally got around to wiring up my gauges and the only thing I am having trouble figuring out is what I do with the 2 wires that run off of my transmission sensor. There are 2 orange wires that i ran through the fire wall but I am not sure where they go

Also, I tried to do a search but was unable to find it. What are the proper operating temperatures of the EGT and Transmission?

Thanks for the help guys!!

Does the back of your guage have two screw terminals opposite each other, and not the long silver ones that are used for mounting in something other than a guage pod? Those wires I am guessing have a ring terminal on them and each of the two slide onto its own screw terminal. I cant remember if it matters which one goes on which side. Does you still have your installation sheet that can explain which goes where?

I am pretty sure it has two screw terminals. The wires do not have any terminals on them but it would not be a big deal for me to add them. I thought i still had the installation sheet but cant find it anywhere. The way i am thinking, one of the wires has to tell the gauge what the reading and the other wire is a ground but I am not sure.

Oh. I have autometers so ours would not look the same. Have you tried searching google for installation instructions. You would be surprised what is available out there. Good luck.
