Transmission pressure guage

Which guage does everyone use to read line pressure on their transmissions? I just built a 47re and was looking at the a&d tools guage from advance auto?

I went to a hydraulic shop and bought a 500psi gauge and made up a #6 AN line for it.

I had a 250psi gauge at first, it didn't last very long, even though it was never totally maxed out pressure wise.

I looked at the SnapOn gauges set, then went to a Parker Store and had a line made and bought a 300 psi liquid filled gauge. Much cheaper than the SnapOn set.

We have used this one at work and have been pleased, but it could probably be reproduced for about $100 by a hobbyist.

Hickok 48165 Universal Digital Pressure Gauge with Remote Readout Amazon.com: Hickok 48165 Universal Digital Pressure Gauge with Remote Readout: Automotive

It's also available as a waekon brand. May be cost prohibitive for someone that doesn't use them routinely.

I bought this TCI transmission gauge to permanently monitor pressure. Gauge was $75. I bought a carbon fiber pod and made my own line out of stainless braided ptfe line with AN fittings. Autometer offers a similar gauge for $90.

Does it feed straight in to the gauge or do you have an isolator?

Instructions said to feed directly into the gauge so that’s what I did. Of coarse they don’t “recommend” it being installed in the cab.
