AutoMeter Gauge for Trans...just plug and play




My trans gauge is here and has these 2 fitting and a probe to go in one of them....

I read somewhere I thought there is a port on the transmission where this just screws in...true?

What side and where?

you dont use either of those adapters that are above the long peice. you take out a small nut on the drivers side right where that picture is. its just a small bolt. take it out put in the themo and then run a wire off of the thremo to the guage. it should ground itself from the tranny
