ZF6 temp gauge?

I'm moving my EV2 gauges from my 97 auto to my new 01 ZF6, and have an extra hole in the pillar where my buddy had his DP Tuner switch.

Is there a port somewhere on the trans to install the sender? Or do I have to splice in a T into the rubber line?

Thanks!

Although, I could always just buy a gauge blank and mount the TS knob there. Hmmm...

Gauge blank-52mm Gauge pod blank fills a 52mm (2 1/16") hole in your dash or pod

There are aftermarket PTO covers avaiable with a hole for the sender. You could also get a different gauge, perhaps a fuel pressure or HPOP gauge.

How thin is the PTO cover? Can it be drilled and tapped for the sender?

The stock PTO cover is just stamped steel. I thought about drilling mine but didn't think it would remain leak free for long. You could try welding a bung to it. The drain plug is another option but then you have a sensor sticking down low where it might snag something.
