Auto Tranny Oil Temp Gauge ???s

hello,

i want to install an auto tranny oil temp gauge in my TJ like this:

and i want to install it like this (together with an air pressure gauge):



could you please tell me how i have to install the sender for the auto tranny temp gauge?
do you know such a gauge that also has a scale with degrees celsius?

thanks in advance.

Are you looking for just C or both C and F?

To get the most accurate reading drop the pan and cut a hole. Then weld in a bung with 1/4 npt threads. Then put pan back on and thats where the sendor goes. There are other ways to do it but that is the most accurate.

Instead of welding it cant you use a tap to tap the pan it self?

It's pretty accurate if you put it in the line carrying the hot atf to the cooler. But a shop could weld the bung on in a min or two if you drill the hole.

the only problem with putting it inline with hose is you need to have the sender grounded (im pretty sure) the best way is what was said earlier by putting it in the pan.

I would just do it in the pan as it is the best way to do it.

Nicholas theres a couple companies that make deep trans pans for our tjs. im running the Rubicon Express deep pan. It came with a drain plug all i need to do is fine and adapter for the threading or have it re threaded for my sending unit. you can order a pan get it welded up then on a saturday install it. it took me a couple hours to do mine. because i had to drop the tcase crossmember

Just as long as he has the 3spd. trans and not the O.D. trans. I don't think they make a deep trans pan for the O.D. trans, at least this is what I found out looking for one for my 3spd trans.

i have the 4spd OD tranny.
a pan with a drain plug would be perfect.

On my TJ tranny there are a number of already drilled and tapped ports in and around the transmission case. I just selected the one that was the matching size for sending unit and threaded it in. Took five minutes (well, at least that part did) and works great.
