Trans Temp sender placing options

Is there any other place to mount the sender on the trans? I had a an older auto meter sender shear in the inspection port went to pull it out with an easy out bit, installed the new low profile sender that auto meter sent me free of charge because the first sender bottomed out causing it to shear off. any way. when i pulled the old sender out there still a small amount threaded and bottomed causing the new sender to peg the gauge after driving for about 10 minutes. I know the correct thing to do would be to get the rest of the old sender out but i cannot get up in there with anything and I figured i would wait until the trans gets a rebuild to deal with it. in the mean time i want to get an accurate reading from somewhere else. has any one drilled and tapped the trans sump? i need some opinions I'm sick of not having accurate readings. I know about the Pans with the ports built into them but all the ones i have seen are crazy expensive
Thanks
Will

I tee'd mine in to the line going to the cooler. I like it there because it responds quickly to increasing tranny temps. It is easy to see the temp differences when the torque converter is or is not locked up.

Derale Transmission Pan

Here is a pan that is somewhat affordable. About half the price of most of the other ones I've seen. Pretty cool idea with the hollow tubes in the middle of the pan to help air travel thru it and cool it. It has the threaded port built into it as well, plus a magnetic drain plug.
