Gauge hookup ?'s

Hey finally got ahold of some gauges and now how a few questions on hooking them up. There c2 electrical gauges and came with the electrical sender instead of the probe like the egt gauge. Oil temp and Trans temp do I just drill a hole tap it and screw these senders in or do I have to take the pans off and put a nut on the inside and screw the sender into it? And where's the best place to get the readings? Thanks

If you drill and tap the trans have enough money in the bank for a new trans. You'll need one!

There is a port on the driver's side of the trans, towards the front of the trans, just above the pan. It has a black hex head bolt in it from the factory. Remove the plug and install the sender there. You'll only lose a teaspoon or so of fluid.

Oil temp / pressure can be measured from the 1/8 NPT plug on the side of the oil filter housing.

The EGT probe will require a drill and tap. Here's a link to a how to install page -

Ok cool just a double check I found on the Trans the black hex bolt right by the shift linkage on top of the Trans pan can't tell if its black or not but I'm assuming that's it and for the oil ur speaking of the one bolt other than the fasteners for the housing that looks almost like it doesent belong there ? As far as the egt I already did that way back but thank you anyways guys uv been a big help as always

Look on picture 13 and 14 on the link I listed above. It shows the port Mark told you about.

One more question I got the gauges installed everything's good except the Trans temp and oil temp both just burry the needle past there max way to hot and inaccurate. Each of these gauges had a separate port for a ground but I didn't use them because the directions on the gauge said they ground through the sender. Y are these things reading wrong or is it just because I didn't use that ground port??

A one wire sender uses the ground as a sender. A two wire sender doesn't. My temp senders for my gauges are all two wire.

Well each of these gauges had five hook ups 12 volt constant tied to a switch, ground, sender, then + and - for the lights so I guess ill try to hook up the grounds and see what happens. They work there just not reading the right temp there's no way my oil temp is 300 degrees and my Trans temp five min of driving is 300 degrees it should be around 140 160

I have the C2 gauges from Autometer. The black leads have to be attached to chassis ground. I have 5 gauges on the pillar and all 5 are crimped on one eye that is screwed into the framework under the dash.
