Gauges installed, question...

Installed triple Gauge pod from diesel manor, everything works great except the transaction oil temp is slow, very slow to come up. Is that normal?

My transmission oil temperature takes longer to come up than the other parameters that I monitor.

I suspect it is due to it being farther from the combustion part of the engine which is generating heat quickly, and that its heat comes from the fluid friction inside the transmission itself which will take longer to heat the large mass of metal the transmission is made of.

This is what I think.

Completely normal... 140* is a nice cool temperature to top out at. No worries there.

Keep in mind there is also too COLD... You do not want to be driving around all day with the trans at 100* or below.

That will cause issues just as much as too hot.

Mark K over at Diesel stop forum said the temps I'm running with the 6.0L cooler are fine, even below 100*. The only time he said too get concerned is in the 230*+ range.

It does need to be somewhat warm. Somewhere under 100*F the TC will not lock, in order to produce more heat.
