Ok, tired of searching, I got a cyberdyne digital gauge and I'm looking to
install the thing soon, got some time coming to do it. I was wondering
if anyone had installed one without drilling a hole, I saw that some people
have installed it into a pressure testing port on the 60e. just looking for
advice...not looking to drill unless i absolutely have to.

The sender unit will screw right into the pressure testing port. Just teflon tape the threads, take out the bolt in there replace it with the sender unit, wire...its cake. No need to install the in the tranny pan

115???? thats damn cool... I guess with stock parts though thats about normal... still on the cool side a little maybe.

-mine with the 3600 converter hangs around 145... creeps up to about 170 when I play a little, but comes back down pretty quick... within a few minutes of normal driving.

-you should look into a shift kit, servos and maybe a band for that thing Jim... I'm sure its about due.

yeah....over due lol. its got a vette servo already....need hd2 bad.
Thats right, you already have the 'vette servo... if you can swing it, upgrade to the sonnax servos and get the shift kit. I'll help you install it and set it up how you want. The band is really good insurance if you have some miles on it.

How accurate is putting the sending unit in that pressure test port? I've often wondered this. I installed mine there in my '96 GMC with the 4L60-E. My temps can get up to 180-210 sometimes, which seems really hot for a light weight RCLB. I guess city driving is hell sometimes?

I saw up in the post to teflon tape the threads, but I have also heard not to tape them, for a better ground. Because the threads on the sender are self sealing??? Anyone know. Thanks
