Bottom cooler fittin in the T-350 is the ''out'' from the trans.

Oil directly out of the converter. Temps there can be high depending on your trans / converter setup

SSedan64 Pan, Test Port or Line IN/Return from Cooler.
The line OUT/Feed to Cooler will indicate a much higher temp, it comes straight out of the TC/TorqueConverter.

big gear head Cut a pipe coupler in half. Drill a hole in the pan and weld one half of the coupler to the pan. Put the sender in there.

67Mustang Al. I am not familiar with your trans but if you can use a port thats already there then that is the easy way out. With my 347 Ford i use a Milodon sump and i fitted an oil temp sensor by drilling a hole in the sump and then making a fitting from aluminum and securing it to the sump with about 7 stainless metal threads and some high temp rtv. Works well. ( the sump was off the engine of course)

Calderone i installed it on the pressure test port on the case , works wonderful and it fits perfect !
i removed one shifter fastener and i got the wire thru that hole.-
Easy and clean !

Best way to insert a mechanical trans temp gauge

I wanna install a trans temp gauge on my th350. The only idea I have is to use a t-pipe on the trans cooler line. Also which is the line that feeds the fluid to the cooler.
