Ok , I found the port <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> You should have said it was onthe bellhousing itself <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/nana.gif" alt="" /> Here I was looking all over on the main part by the small pan and couldn't find anything.Its actualy on the bellhousing side of where the bellhousing and tranny join up.

Of course I couldn't find my metric number 11 wrench , so I used a 7/16 box end to take the bolt out that plugs the port.I think all the temp senders are the same size , but if not , you can get the setup I got.Its B&M transmission temperature guage part #80212 , and the sender has the right threads to just screw right in.This will be a piece of cake to hook up this way instead of trying to mess around with the lines and fittings they give you.Basicaly its screw in the sending unit , then wire in the guage , can't go wrong there <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" /> Just remember to follow the instructions on grouning as it has to be properly grounded or it no workie.That goes for the sending unit and the guage , depending how you mount the guage.

If you do end up getting a different brand of guage , just take the bolt that was plugging the hole (don't drive the truck after you do this <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/scared.gif" alt="" /> ) and the auto parts place can double check to make sure the sending unit is plug and play.Hope this helps you out <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />

. . .As for the big one on the other side , I found out quick that its not the right spot <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" /> I took the clip off and popped off that cover.Inside is a big heavy spring , and a plunger that moves the spring.It was a pain to get that clip off as the part where you would normaly use a snap ring plier was broken off , I had to get creative.I will pick up a new snap ring to put back on there , and good as new <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />


like i said up above, that's the "Accumulator Piston cover" and that thing is known for leaking lots. if you're going to be using this trans, you might consider changing that seal out now since what i read is it is hell on wheels to do when the trans is installed.

there may be write-ups here, but i *know* there are a couple over on planetisuzoo, and the Amigo-2K FAQ has some good stuff on it, too
here's a link for you and yours;
this one has some info and links to others:
http://forum.planetisuzoo.com/viewtopic.php?t=8388

hth

btw -- since you've gone this far, any chance of a couple more photo's?
*of what that Accumulator piston area looks like, parts, etc. (this would be a good addition to the knowledge base on this since i've yet to see such a pix)

*and of the plug/port that this all started with?

thanks

Ok , as requested here are some pics of exactly where that port is , and what it looks like with plug on and off.Not sure the exact thread size , but it is a fine thread , and for wrench size you can use metric 11 or SAE 7/16 , either works.

Here is a pic with the plug still in.As you can see its on the side of the tranny where the shift rail is , and its on the bellhousing side of where the bellhousing and tranny join up , which is what threw me off , as I was looking for something closer to where the lines go.

And here is with the plug out.It is a very small bolt in there , probably not even 3/4" long.You can see it in the bottom of the picture if you look close.

With the sending unit I got in my B&M kit it fits in there perfect , so if all the sending units are the same(which I think they are) , as my kit says it fits any auto transmission , then its good to go just plug and play.Then its just a matter of wiring in the guage and your good to go.

As for requests of the Accumulator Piston cover , I took some pics of that as it is all dissasembled right now.I will start a new post with the pics , then the mods can move it over to the archives so people will know what is under there if theres starts leaking.

Sorry about the big pics , but even resizing them before I send them to photobucket doesn't make a difference.They are like 20KB , can't make them much smaller <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/scared.gif" alt="" />

Great, thanks for the pics. It looks to be 1/8".
Now, let me just fix my truck after the deer mishap and next thing is the temp gauge.
