no bashing meant here, but isn't that just a compresion fitting? Would a half inch compression tee from hardware store work ok?

I just went to the local hydraulic shop and got a steel compression t he even had one 1/2 compression X1/8 ip. cost 7 bucks. Ive had brass compression fittings work themselves loose on my tractors, never once has a steel fitting failed.

I have a 95 but I am not sure where the port is. Is it in this pic? I see a plug on the housing but not a port in the line.

Yes it is. Clean the brass colored thing. That's the stock fuel temp sensor. I put a 1K resistor in the connector covered with oil in this picture and used the port for my aftermarket transmission temp gauge.

ok thanks, can you go into a little more detail. What would happen if I just disconnected that wire clip? Why would that be a fuel temp sensor if tranny fluid is going through there? Thanks

Oops. That's a typo. It's the transmission temp sensor. If you disconnect the wire clip (connector) you won't have OD or lockup. The PCM will react as if the transmission was cold. A 1K resistor in the connector causes the PCM to react as if the transmission was at normal operating temps. If the transmission gets hot enough the PCM will turn on the warning light and drop OD and lockup. The problem with that is if it got hot enough for that to happen the transmission is already damaged. Better to use a resistor in the connector and use the port for a transmission temp gauge.

ok that makes sense. So I can get a 1k resister at home depot or somewhere. then I cut off the clip and splice the resister on? Or would it use the existing clip. Thanks for the help

A 1000 ohm resistor is 25¢ at Radio Shack.
When you unplug the stock sensor you see how easy it is to push the resistor leads into the connector securely.
Don't hook the stock sensor back up with the resistor.
