Question about transmission temp sender on manual 6 speed

bought a mechanical autometer trans temp gauge.

I know i dont need the temp gauge for a 6 speed but i wanted to fill my gauge pod......and these questions may be elementary but here it goes.


couple question, i tried to insert the provide 1/2 inch thread adapter to which the sending unit screws to and it seem like it was loose.....was that the right threading? if not do i need an adapter?

the port was the plug which to need (i think) a 1/2 inch breaker bar.

if anybody has pictures of their installation i'd appreciate it, i have searched the forums and can only find auto info.

thanks. im not trying to weld that thing and all that involved, but thats great to know the adapter is available. i appreciate the reply.

next two questions....
1. until i get time to cruise the site for the company which sells the adapter, does anybody know who it is?

2. even the the temp isnt that important to a light hauler with a 6'er, will i get a decent reading?

I purchased the adapter (5 years ago) from Diesel Power Products. I don't think they're a supporting vendor any longer. You can do a search and find their web site. It cost about $30, including shipping, and took just a few minutes to install. Just ask them if they still have the Manual Transmission temp plug for a Ford 6-speed.

I get good readings on mine, but keep in mind that the temp reading start at 100. In real cold weather I might not get up to that.
