trans temp gauge

i got a set of isspro gauges and the trans temp sending unit is larger than what i see everyone else running. i saw on another thread about putting the sending unit in place of the bolt above the pan, infront of the gear selector. well mine the sending unit is essentually a bolt with a 3/4" head on it there for it wont fit in the bolt hole. can i order a smaller one from somewhere that will fit this hole? i have a mag-hytec pan and that has the small 1/8" (or whatever size it is) hole for the sending unit as well. what you do you guys recomend?

If yolu cant order one anywhere you may just have to tap the pan for that 3/4" bolt.

I have a 6.0 but it looks like the same install. I got mine from Diesel Manor and they gave me a complete set of step up/downs for the intall. Try and give them a call.

You got the wrong gauge!! Isspro's makes a trans temp gauge that screws right into the pressure port on the side of the trans. CHECK YOUR PM's.

you can get a compression fittings thats a t and cut your hot line going in to the trans cooler. thats the best way...well for dodges. i had it in the front servo port and that wasnt too good, i found out later it could damage the servo and fluid dont always flow through there like in reverse and 1 and 2 gear. it didnt give me a accurate reading.
