    b&m drain plug kit. it has a 1/8 pipe thread plug in it. it is the same size as the sender unit.

    but to get true info on hot tranny you need to read the output line temp going to the cooler.

    hmmm soo i *could* in essence make some kinda like piece that goes in between the tranny and tranny cooler line? and put the sensor in that way? or i guess i could just guestimate the "real" temp as comp to the gauges temp. and just round upwards. the safe temp is somewheres around 150-200right?

    the tee fitting will have a 1/4 pipe thread bung on the center outlet. then you need a 1/4 pipe to 1/8 pipe reducer. might be kind of hard to find. also it needs to be 5/16 compression fittings on the ends if your tranny cooler lines are stockers.

    you can get remote tranny filter doo-dads from Summit than come with a temp sensor "port" in them already.

    summit part #...

    PRM-10678

    run a line from the trans, to the filter, then on to the cooler. No drilling, tapping, welding or anything else required.
