HELP!

I am gonna change my trans fluid tommorow. I also have to install my probe for my trans gauge. I bought the SW gauges from RPM outlet, and the probe itself it 3/8" big. The backing nut that it has on it is about 1/2" NPT threaded. I cannot fit the probe in the existing hole that Ford put above the pan, so i am gonna drill into the pan and tap it. Any suggestions? where to drill, or how to make sure the hole doesnt leak? Or any other suggestions on how to mount the probe?

Also, I am noticing trans fluid on my steering stabilizer, and the front axle, and on the trans lines going to the cooler up front. where could this be leaking from? could it be the factory spring clamps that for put on the rubber lines where they meet the hard lines? any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks!!!

I would send the gauges back and buy autometers or isspro's the trans temp will fit the test port. Or check with the vendor or company and see it they have a trans temp probe that fits.

So I shouldnt try drilling the pan? I have had the gauges for a while, dont think I can send em back. what if I drilled the hole, threaded it in, and put a nut on the back side of the one that holds the probe in, on the inside of the pan. that way it cant back out.

well, the problem is that the hole that everyone else uses is 1/4". The probe itself on my guage is 3/8". The probe alone wont even fit in the hole let alone the nut that hold it in. I might be able to drill that hole out bigger to fit, but I dunno. We had huge storms that hit us today. The same ones that hit the ATL hit us. so it was monsooning here today. It will have to be postponed till next week I guess....


But more ideas are always welcome.
And what about the leaking trans fluid?????
