with a diff temp you can get two sending units and a micro switch and mount it on pod near the gauge face... use the switch to go from front to rear

i have a fuel pressure gauge with the sender on the fuel bowl and a oil temp gauge as well... two more you might think about

what do you currently have?



where are you mounting them?

I have, one pyro (soon to be two, right and left man) boost, trans temp, fuel pressure, oil pressure, oil temp, water temp. I'm leaning to volts and (I like that switch idea!) diff temp. How do you tap for diff temp?

Remind me to stay away from both of you when traveling down the highway.Have so many gauges to stare at how in the heck do you keep your eyes on the road.

i don't have a diff temp yet (that is next on my list) but i have seen it done (in person, not over the net) by two different ways.... the cheaper is to weld a 1/8th bung onto your stock diff. cover to mount the sending unit below the fluid leval, i'm going to weld a bung in mine... and the expensive way is to buy a set of mag hytec diff covers that come with a 1/8th sending unit port allready in them

well, I guess it cant all be easy... Might have to make something up to protect the sender on the front diff... Anyone found a gauge that say's Diff temp, or are you using oil temp?

I like the multi gauge pod look. So what diff oil temps do you guys see?

People with cell phones are the ones i have to look out for, they have their mind on other things besides driving and their vehicle.
