Hi, I've been to every auto parts stores in town looking for a T-fitting so I can use the transmission temp gauge sender without drilling hole. Seems like none of the counter people had never heard of T-Fitting and kept suggesting me to drill hole in tranny pan. Can anyone lead me to the right direction to purchase this fitting? Thanks!

Why not just install it in a pressure port in the side of the case? Last one I did read 130* tops in the case, when it was moved to a t-fitting on the return line as the instructions said it read barely over 100*. It was moved because 130 didn't seem high enough. What a waste of a good gauge!

That was on an a4ld that had an overheating problem for years before an overhaul and the removal of the stock cooler for a 28k Long trucool.

Maybe it should have been installed on the inlet line?
