what kind of plug do you have on the end of your tranny gauge? I can't remember if that tranny pan has a 1/8 npt or not?
Lots of good info here on gauge installs: Gauge Installations at DieselManor- 2003-2007 5.9L Cumminsi finally got my mag hytec 727d trans pan that i have been waiting on for a while and i have had a dipricol trans temp guage for a while now i want to plug the guage into the trans pan and am not sure how to do this i am mechanically retarded lol anyone want to walk me through the process or is it easier to just take it in and have them do it for me?
I think the key is getting a baseline temperature. Once you establish your normal temperature range, then you will know if your developing a problem, or pushing it too hard towing, when temperatures expectantly start rising.so whats the point in having the ability to put i n the pan if its not going to give a good reading, if i would have known this i would have gotten it put somewhere else and not payed he $300 for the hytek deep trans pan
i understand your point, I had the same issue. I saved myself the deep pan and bought a $40 fitting that cuts the hot line coming out of the transmission and takes a reading where the fluid is the hottest. I could give you the numbers I see here but it wouldn't help you much with the sender in the pan since this ends up taking an average temp not an instant temp of what is going on.so whats the point in having the ability to put i n the pan if its not going to give a good reading, if i would have known this i would have gotten it put somewhere else and not payed he $300 for the hytek deep trans pan
