Transmission Fluid Temperature

I wonder does anyone have installed a sender unit for transmission temperature gauge at pressure control tap?

For what reason? Trans. temp. is largely not controllable, unless towing heavy load, then might be reduced some if is deemed too high by "easing off".
 






I did. It was easy. My trans was out on the bench. There's a heat shield that will give you trouble. Mine works great. I have GlowShift guage. I installed it simply to know what the actual temp of the trans fluid is at any give moment. I had to add an extender to give me more room.

Temperature Auto Gauge sensor has a - 1/8-27 NPT port

What thread does the extension have to transmission?
