My apologies. Here are the correct pics with the test ports.Thank you for the diagrams...Im not sure where to put it...but, I have the Debbie sensor and the adapter that folks said was the way to go on this..one guy even had Amazon links....but when I got them and tried to screw in the sender, it bottomed out after about four threads... closer inspection shows that the adapter has a taper female and and the sensor is just irregular non taper...so now I'll just send them back and do the 3-way pressure fitting.
Sometimes you just have to do the "legwork" and take the measurements to find what's needed on your own.It's all good...this makes more sense...thank you very much.
Still the auto meter pt# 2259 does not fit into pt# 2265.
So even though I potentially could install my gauge tomorrow... alas, I'll have to order different parts and go different route... unless somebody knows what adapter fits the first gen transmission and will receive the part number 2259 stubby sensor
I teflon'd mine just for peace of mind, haven't had a peep from the fitting set since installation. Zero leakage. I used the pressure port method BTW ( 2014 Jatco 5 speed ), not the inline T-fitting.Thanks...i may take you up on that...
The 3 way I was looking at, was the compression fittings one. It would T up off the metal transmission line...but I don't think I would be opposed to doing it Downstream a little... can't imagine the temp would change that much within 3 feet.
Just talked to the autometer company... they said that indeed to only expect 3 or 4 threads to go in to the adapter... I'm a little on the fence about that... I mean, you got a good 15 or 20 rotations to bottom out in that adapter...and only 4 threads in it's all good? Apparently because the adapter is a taper fitting, it offers great compression fit to avoid leaks in fact, they said that you don't even need any kind of Teflon tape and whatnot.. 🤔
I had contemplated doing that as well but decided that if I should happen to F something off...I'd rather it be the pan.The 3 way I was looking at, was the compression fittings one. It would T up off the metal transmission line
IMHO I'd go with the D / 2 / 1 port as fluid would be moving through that area in all forward gears. Overheating in Reverse would be highly odd indeed. I'm not sure if anyone on the forum has tried this port yet so one big caveat I'd mention would be to be 101% sure that nothing behind that port is spinning, theoretically if you inserted a probe that is deeper than the factory test fitting for the Jatco pressure gauge assy, and something back there is spinning, that could end very poorly as soon as the truck went into any forward gear position.So which pressure port would you recommend?
The door jamb sticker has the transmission type on it.Going by the diagram...the drive pressure test port is on the rear passenger side...there it a heat shield that I removed to expose a bolt that looks like the area of the diagram... however there's no earthly way of putting in a adapter and a pressure sensor....uuuuugh!
