Clive. I can't see any reason why you can't stick an aftermarket temp sender in the trans fluid line and fit a gauge.

Something like this is all you need:

£50 + vat and it comes with all the bits !



That won't be Made in England then. That would be £50 + vat. Hose Sir? That will be £7 extra. Clips Sir? Certainly, 90p each. Cables ties? Yes we do those in a pack of 7 for 99p.

Very useful write up George.


anyone know what model number this one is ?  405 ?

Autometer make a trans temp guage and fitting kit with instructions, not cheap but considered the best
http://www.autometer.com/search_results.aspx?q=transmission%20temperature

Now I think you have a choice of where to install the sensor, You can mount it in the oil pan/sump of the transmission or "T" into the return line from the cooler.
To "T" into the line I would personally do it into the steel return line using compression fittings, Not sure if these are supplied with the fitting kit or not, But if you need one then any hydrualic specialist should be able to supply the correct size, all you need is to accurately measure the outside diameter of the steel tube using a caliper or micrometer and the hydrualics man should be able to help you out.


It Is a shame that Darren is not about any more as I am sure he could help with advice and parts to do this, alternatively ask on www.astrosafarivans.com

Read through this post with interest and I remember that I couldnt work out how to disconnect the union from the radiator, so I used this method, I cut through the pipe with a small roller type pipe cutter (think they use it for brake lines) then I made up some 90 degree elbows to direct the pipe work through to the front of the rad, here......

then I piped up the trans cooler using the frexible pipe that came with the kit.....

its been on now for 18 months- 2 yrs with no problems. Hope this helps someone.
