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

30-284 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.

Rawkon 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

4.0l sahara I would just do it in the pan as it is the best way to do it.

nicolas-eric the problem is that i only have this TJ.
when the tranny pan is off i canīt drive to a shop that can weld that for me.
02-10-2008 06:18 PM
Rawkon 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.
02-10-2008 06:12 PM
4.0l sahara 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.

4.0l sahara 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.

02-10-2008 04:30 PM
