Ok I am almost there. A few more rubber lines to install. The turbo is just sitting in place due to rear engine cover not being on yet. A few more brackets and pieces to paint. I still need to weld on a bung to the oil pan for the oil temp sensor.

Another option is to put the temperature sensor in the port on the oil cooler. The port on top (the plug visible in this photo) is pre-cooler oil temperature, and should match what is in the pan, or a hair higher having gone through the pump.

Right on. Thanks DAVe3283. I didn’t know if that was a usable spot or not. I may look into that. I have the two temp probe bungs on the way. But that’s a really good option.

Is there a spot similar to this for the transmission as well? I’m installing a trans temp sensor as well and I’m not interested in cutting the line.

Never mind. I found that there is a test port adapter for the trans temp sensor. It’s on its way.

Huh, looks like the Kodiak didn't come with a transmission temperature gauge like the light duty (2500 and 3500 trucks) did. I wonder if the Allison still has the internal temperature sensor you could read from the TCM? Sounds like on at least some of the years you could read it with a scan tool.

According to this thread, you can add a factory gauge to the Kodiak. Looks like the adapter hooks to the transmission line, shouldn't require cutting it. But using the test port should work too.

My truck has a factory trans temp gauge, in fact there are a lot of posts about how bad the factory gauge is, and replacing them with after market gauges. (mine doesnt move until it hits about 180degs)

Rdminter, I think mine did as well but I’m putting in 7 different maxtow glow shift gauges and I am going to use the sensors that come specific to the gauges. I don’t mind drilling into the tank and welding the bungs in and repainting the pans. I know it won’t move much if at all. Mh customer doesn’t do any heavy hauling.

Front main seal is in. (I was fortunate to be able to borrow an install tool from a local Diesel shop.) Alternator bracket and fan bracket are torqued down. EGR valve is cleaned and painted. I’m cleaning the carbon out of the cooler and intake connector piece before I put back on. I’ve had the EGR turned off in the tune and I’m installing a blocker plate on the up pipe, but I’ve cleaned the inside of the rest of the intake pieces so might as well this too. I may even put a blocker plate on both sides.
I still need to get the engine off the stand and install the rear engine cover and rear main seal so I can torque down the turbo as well as put the oil pans back on. And paint a few more pieces.
