Default Trans temps ?

On a Borg warner trans C 72. Is the larger pipe plug where the press & temp senders should be ? what is normal temp ? If temp goes up is it too late (the damage is done) . what temp will be a sign that you might have the beginning of some trouble . thanks 1

nah... just 1 of those things in my head...

i am actually in the process of plumbing my engine and trans ...running -10 on the trans and put a 1/8 npt right before oil goes back in the trans ...

figure , it's run it's course through the system and that would be a good place to check the pressure...

if i'm wrong ....someone please correct me...

Marc Bamm told pressure is more important than temp.. he told me to take the temp sensor out and use that port for pressure

Default I hear ya

I replaced all of my gauges and carbon fiber dash , Auto Meter marine only made trans temp 2 5/8 so thats what I went with. I called today , they dont make a marine press that goes up to 200 or 250 PSI . I picked up a mechanical oil filled gauge that I will screw into the trans , Better than nothing, Im always checkin under the hatch anyway !
thinkin of puttin a tee in so I can read both . what do you think ? Cant hurt .
