Oil Temp Gauge Install?
I was looking to get some info on adding a Oil Temp gauge to my 2010 ISX CM871. Truck is a 2010 Pete 388 and it was ordered as a basic fleet truck with the minimal gauge package. I am wondering if there is a place in the harness to tie into to add a temp gauge from the sensor the ECU reads? If not, I am open to an aftermarket gauge with a temp sending unit, but I would need to know where on the engine i can access a port to add the oil temp sending unit. (it looks like most are 1/8 npt)
any input would be greatly appreciated!

The factory gauge would be the easiest solution.

Next to that, you should read thru the the thread that tree98 posted.

Rawze, I read through the post and even had some conversations with Tree69. Im still not sure of where a good port would be for me to access to add an aftermarket temp sensor. His engine is an ISX 15 and I dont see the same ports on the side of my CM871. any input on where a good port would be?

Maybe weld a bung into the oil pan and then monitor with insite to see how much different the temp is if any. So if insite says it's 220 and your gauge is reading 205 you'll know to just add 15 degrees to whatever it's reading.
